Often the key to a gripping story is being at the right place at the right time. An Australian news cameraman proved that when he stopped by the side of the road by a clearly distraught man with motorcycle, and it turned into a high-speed pursuit.

In the video from USA Today, the biker initially confessed to beating a woman, and he and the cameraman were waiting for the police to arrive. However, the guy apparently changed his mind about being taken into custody so easily. He pulled a gun and took the cameraman's news van on a high-speed ride with its dashcam capturing it all on video.

Thankfully, no one was seriously injured, but check out the video below to see how it all went down, once the biker stole the van.
