A San Antonio cable worker was taken on a wild ride early Tuesday when a woman stole his truck while he was inside it.

San Antonio police said the cable worker was downtown at a job site near the intersection of Navarro and Soleded when the suspect jumped into his truck and took off around midnight.

The worker was inside the attached trailer and called police, but was unable to give dispatchers a good location.

San Antonio police said the woman drove the cable truck down a one way street and crashed into a light pole at Saving Street and Soledad.

Police tracked down the cable truck and arrested the 45-year-old female suspect.

Her name has not been released, but she was expected to be charged with theft of a vehicle. The cable worker was not injured.
