(KSL News) -- A purse snatching in Mesquite ended in a high speed chase in St. George this week.

Utah Highway Patrol Troopers spotted a stolen car minutes after getting a description. The car with two people inside led troopers through traffic, reaching speeds of 100 miles an hour.

The dashcam video shows how the car lost control, turned off the road and then skidded back on and hit a semi truck.

No one was hurt. Police put the driver and a passenger in jail.
