Christian County, MO (KSPR/CNN) - Authorities used a cell phone to track down a man accused of leading them on a high speed chase, in an 18 wheeler.

Springfield, Missouri police just released this dash cam video showing the pursuit.

Officers attempted to pull the man over after catching him driving erratically last month, but when they did, they say the semi-driver took off.

He eventually flipped the big rig and ran into the woods.

Authorities had given up the search until, they say, the man used his cell phone.

They found and arrested him.

The Missouri Highway Patrol say the driver likely tried to elude police because he's accused of stealing $700 worth of gas from a truck stop.
