I think tomorrow we're going to get a thread with the title "Pulled on a crown victoria today then a news chopper want some too", and it's going to be about how he mis-shifted at one point but slowly "walked" on the other car. Then we'll get bunch of flames about how thats impossible, then he'll post a link to the video...

I always had a secret fantasy when I had my old car about being car-jacked and I'll be like, you got in the right car buddy, I'll help you out run those bastards. Then I can tear through the streets with no consequences!

I saw that today! What a trip. Is it sad that i was paying more attention to the bmw than the actual sceanrio of what happened...

Anyway, the lady jumped out so fast cause she had her baby in the backseat. Poor thing, i woulda been so pissed.. then i prob woulda went and looked at the bmw to see how the side airbags deployed

Wild chase comes to crash ending

(1/18/06 - KTRK/HOUSTON) - A dangerous high speed police chase led officers in circles all over Houston before coming to a crashing halt in a wrong-way head-on collision with an innocent driver.

A driver in a BMW has been traveling at very high rates of speed as law enforcement agencies tailed him for over an hour. The chase apparently began as some type of disturbance call. The details are not clear at this time.

The chase finally ended with a wrong-way head-on collision on the northbound entrance ramp to the Southwest Freeway at Shepherd. The suspect crashed into another car, trapping the driver. A female passenger was apparently uninjured and immediately jumped from the vehicle to run to the backseat and check on an infant. The baby was secured in a car seat, and appears to be unharmed. The driver of that car was taken to an area hospital. The extent of her injuries are not known.

The suspect climbed out the sun roof of his car with his hands up. He was taken into custody without further incident.

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.

Over the course of the chase, the man drove on nearly every freeway in Houston, including I-45, the Hardy Toll Road, Beltway 8, I-10, Highway 290 and Highway 59.

Officers attempted to use spikes to flatten his tires, but those were ineffectual. Multiple law enforcement agencies have been used in the pursuit, occasionally sending word ahead to have more officers waiting.

There's no word yet what charges the suspect will face.

Maybe he was having a mid-life crisis event and wanted to outrun the cops?

The news reporter said it was a blue car but it seems like Sparkling Graphite.

He seemed to be enjoying himself. He was smoking at one point!!

Too bad he crashed into that other car. I'm glad the baby is ok though.

So the E90 has great speed, handling, run-flat tires, and safety structure. BMW should put this on their website. BMW: the criminal car of choice
