Were they on the whole time? I think the car automatically puts them on when you crash.

Correct, unlocks doors, blows connections to battery terminals, cuts fuel, and turns on emergency flashers

Here are some choice snippets from a news article:

"Authorities began chasing the man around 1:45pm Wednesday. At one point, no officers were even directly behind him. He managed to elude the Channel 13 helicopter, which can go 100 miles per hour. "

"Officers attempted to use spikes to flatten his tires, but those were ineffectual. "

No the driver got out immediately after the crash with his hands up. Just popped right out of the sunroof like a gopher or something.

Those announcers are retards... the police immediately arrest the crazy driver in plain sight on TV and put him in the police car... and for the next ten minutes the announcers keep confusing the onsite utility workers for the guy! Didn't make any sense.
