WASHTUCNA, Wash. — A Washington State Department of Transportation asphalt truck caught fire after it was stolen from a facility in the southeastern part of the state.
Because that area of southeastern Washington is sparsely populated, the missing asphalt truck was probably easy to spot, especially after it caught fire at some point.
Once they caught up with the vehicle, Washington State Patrol troopers used spike strips to stop the truck and the suspect inside.
WSDOT_East said it was grateful its crews weren’t injured during the incident.
The truck, however, appears to have been destroyed.
