The dramatic footage was filmed by a news helicopter recording the chase by police cars.
The car weaves in and out of traffic on a highway in Dallas, Texas in the US as the chase is streamed live on TV.
Suddenly the reporters can be heard gasping as the car approaches a traffic light junction behind waiting cars.
The fleeing driver flies into the back of a minivan.
“Oh! We’ve had a collision here,” one of the stunned presenters says.
Seconds later a woman gets outs of the minivan and decides to take justice into her own hands.
She swings a punch at the fleeing driver before the passenger of the minivan joins in to grab the bloke and throw him to the ground.
The stunned TV hosts continue to report on the unbelievable sight before them.
“Let’s watch what happens here we know police are not that far away,” the male reporter says.
The other TV host is in disbelief as she explains: “The driver and the passenger of the car that was hit have grabbed the driver that was fleeing police – and they threw him on the ground!”
The stunning clip has had more than six million views on YouTube and the hits have been soaring after it was reposted to social media this week.
One person commented: “They say ‘they”re holding him ’til police get there’.
“Nah they”re beating his ass.”
Another said: “He thought his car could get through that 18inch gap between cars?”
While another was on the minivan driver’s side, labelling her a “bad ass woman”.
Earlier a shocking CCTV clip showed the horror moment a man violently attacked women eating at a restaurant.
In the brutal assault the thug dragged a woman by her hair before punching one of her friends in the face.
