Video: Car fleeing from police goes through park, nearly hits children
Police were involved in a pursuit of a car Saturday, and dramatic video from a FOX 13 News viewer shows the car speeding across the grass of Founders Park as children frantically move out of the way.So, this fourteen year old delinquent steals his grandfather's car. He proceeds to go on a joyride, listening to the police scanner, when he decides the best way to shake the po-po is to drive through a playground where young children are playing. The cops back off, because they don't want to endanger the kids, so he decides another run is in order.
The chase ended around 6:12 p.m. at 1500 S. Banbury Drive in Syracuse, and police officials said a minor had taken the vehicle without permission and officers sought the vehicle on a breach of trust.
Then one of the dads gets pissed. Dad has a Dodge Earthf**ker. On the little bastard's third swing around, Dad rams the sonofabitch. Hilarity ensues.
Here's the wreck:
And here's the damage to both vehicles:
I'm sorry, I can't look at that picture without giggling. Folks, this is what happens when a 2500 pound Hyundai Veloster meets a 7500 pound Dodge Mega Cab Ram. The Hyundai is demolished and has to be towed away. The Dodge needs some Brite Kleen on the bumper.
My biggest hope here is that the driver of the Ram isn't cited. Technically, he's at fault - he's on the wrong side of the road. Now, in Massachusetts he would most likely be arrested and charged with attempted murder (and a side-charge of hurting the environment with his oversized truck). I'm hoping that, this being Utah, he'll get a medal for his actions.
And maybe an enterprising UT truck accessory business will be smart and offer him a replacement bumper...
That is all.
