Police Car Chases Ferrari, Crashes into Minivan
text size: A- A+
After an officer on duty saw a red Ferrari, dangerously and erratically driven, turn onto the highway, taking off at very high speed, he tried to catch up. Unfortunately a surprise patch of loose gravel stood in the way of his pursuit. The police car spun around twice and slammed into a minivan, at the intersection of Takeda and Barnet in Burnaby. We bet that if wasn’t for that, he would have caught the Ferrari for sure. Not!
"As the officer was attempting to close the distance, from my accounts, he might have hit a patch of road-gravel causing the vehicle to turn, lost control and swerved into a minivan with a single occupant," Constable Bill Kim of the Port Moody Police Department told news1130.com.
“We are committed to maintaining and enhancing the quality of life in Port Moody. Through strong community partnerships, we protect life and property and provide services that resolve problems and prevent crime,” is the Port Moody Police Department’s statement. Well, if that is how they protect property, we sure don’t want to know how they protect life.
This isn’t the first incident the police is making a fool out of itself. In February, the LA Police tried to catch a Bentley driver in a chase that lasted more than three hours. Though driving with less than 40mph, it was when he eventually pulled over (in the same place where the chase began) that police surrounded the vehicle.
