Cop Chases And Prison Escapes
This chase was an amazing display of driving. After the cops tried the PIT maneuver on the Mustang, the driver was able to drive away after doing a donut! Even after being cornered and having nowhere to go, at least it seemed that way, the driver was able to drive away! Eventually the police did catch him and the driver will have a lot to explain in court. (Arnold)
Two fugitives have escaped from prison in Ohio and North Carolina! Kevin Singleton and John Modie escaped prison on Sunday and Monday. Singleton escaped by fashioning a weapon-like tool out of a toothbrush and he is still on the run! Modie was found and captured and is now being held for not only murder and robbery, but now escape as well. (Johnson)
The PIT Maneuver
This maneuver is very useful in helping to catch criminals on the run. Basically, the police nudge the back corner of the criminal's car in order to send it sideways and force the person to stop ("What Is a PIT Maneuver?"). The full name is precision immobilization technique.
You Can Run, But You Can't Hide
Criminals run. That is why we have chases. However, there is one thing that nobody can run from. Nobody can outrun a radio. People can hide from a helicopter in a tunnel, but eventually you have to come out, or else you get trapped inside. No matter how hard you try, the radio will always find you.
Crash Ends Chase
This police chase ended in the worst way one can imagine. After a long chase, the white car crashed into the green one, sending them both rolling down the street. As police looked on, they could only hope that their suspect hadn't killed another innocent civilian.
Horrific Police Chase Crash
In yet another chase, there was another crash. The SUV was booming down the northbound lane when it came up on 3 wide traffic. The police behind the man in the SUV followed him down the breakdown lane before attempting the PIT maneuver at the end of the long line of traffic. The man over corrected and swerved into the northbound lane. It slammed into a white car and rolled over, skidding 50 feet before stopping. Both drivers are now recovering in the hospital.
Man Escapes Prison with Helicopter
This man escaped prison by arranging for a ride out in a helicopter. The pilot flew into the yard while being shot at by police. The two men got away, but there was heavy damage done to the helicopter.
Tunnel Aids Escape
It was like a scene straight out of a movie. Inmates had been digging for months, never being caught by the guards. The inmates that were caught say that they just kept putting a rock over the hole after every day of digging. Over thirty inmates escaped and more than ten are still on the run
