It would have been nice to have a sports car in this situation! Scary stuff.

That is the exact same thing I was now wondering. I also wonder how long it will be before we all end up with dash cams for insurance purposes and situations like this.

Good thing this guy was alert, though I would have gotten on the phone with the police earlier. Sad but nearly every driver I see is on their phones at stoplights unaware of what's going on around them.

I'm wondering how he lost the cop so easily--the cop was not far from him.

So I watched the video and thought the same thing as all of you; wtf, was that the red 300 at the end?!

But then I realized that it wasn't, because I counted the spokes on the red 300 from the beginning and the one from the end, and they have different wheels on with a different number of spokes (unless the 300 in question has different wheels on the driver side than the passenger side, hahaha). I think the police and the driver both thought it might have been that red 300, and we missed the questioning/figuring-out of things out that led them to dismiss the innocent red 300 at the end, since it probably happened outside the car off-camera.

I would like to share a personal story happened to my sister , due to the fact that I believe sharing in those situations is knowledge that can help someone. The location is irrelevant since it can happen everywhere. However the road that this thing happened is a very well guarded road wth embassies and in a good suburb of my town..

Around 4:15 AM my sister leaves my office, since we had lots of work those days. I stayed at the office for 30 minutes more to finish something I have started. Our home is 6 minutes drive from the office. After 10 minutes I receive a call from her, screaming and yelling, HELP, please HELP me, in a trembled voice. She continues, a bike and car is after me and I am at this round about that has people around.

I start running to get my bike, like never before and I realised that accidentally she had taken the keys of bike. I felt so helpless. After 10 minutes of running to the near round about i meet her at a busy road crying. So what has happened?

2 blocks after our office on an intersection there was a bike and car. They have seen a young woman , with a new small car. After they see her, they start following her. On the bike were 2 guys. The bike overtakes her and the car goes after her starting to horn and accelerating. The guys from the bike suddenly brake to make her stop. FORTUNATELY she panicked and overpass them. They have start going for over 80-90 km/h in a small road. The bike then overpasses her again and blocks the road completely by stopping horizontal on the road. The last moment before she crashes on them sees a small road and turns there going opposite the whole road and finding at the end of the road a very busy round about with people around. I will never forget her voice in my life the moment she called me and also the way I felt so helpless to do something for her and only being 500 meters from me.

All of us have sisters, mothers, wives and girlfriends and I thing sharing the story will might help someone to react in a proper way.

No one really knows what they would do in a situation like this until it happens to them. But if I were that driver, the crazy part of me might have driven straight at the 300 after putting it in reverse and backing up. The 300 would have served and going fast in the wrong direction I would have made few quick turns and vanished.

Very scary stuff.

A cop pulled a gun on me while I was filling up my car in Ohio. Apparently a tall blonde had robbed a holiday in near our location.

No woman needs you to protect them. I have stories that'll make you stay at home at all times but to quote an old bond movie: What's the point of living if you're not feeling alive or something?

Or, we can scare all comes off from thw roads and finally you all can do the school runs! Works for me too

I don't personally think this is a car jacking. Road rage looking to give a beat down maybe. But a car doesn't chase a subaru all over to car jack it. They would look for easier unaware prey and sneak up on someone not aware at a light etc.
