A Texas prisoner who was being transferred on Wednesday managed to escape his restraints, break the patrol car window and climb onto its roof while the vehicle drove down a highway, authorities said.

The wild maneuver allegedly made by Martin Estrada, 31, was caught on tape by motorists driving behind the patrol car.

The incident occurred after a Taylor County sheriff’s deputy arrived to a facility in Wichita Falls and learned that Estrada allegedly assaulted another individual “and was being discharged for safety reasons,” the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook.

The inmate was sought in Taylor County for “insufficient bond” on multiple charges, officials said.
