It doesn’t matter if you think you can outrun the cops – you can’t outrun a radio. That’s a lesson that this Chevy Tahoe driver had to learn the hard way after he tried to flee from police officers in a high-speed chase that ended when his SUV was taken out with a PIT maneuver. Now, we’re watching it all go down in the following viral video.
Recently posted online, the video is about six-and-a-half minutes long, and was captured in Crittenden County, Arkansas. According to the video description, the chase occurred on the morning of July 17th. Around 10:30 a.m. local time, Officer Spencer Morris overheard radio traffic indicating a pursuit was under way on Military Road involving a Chevy Tahoe. The Tahoe was headed towards Mound City Road, and Officer Morris was able to intercept the SUV on Interstate 40 eastbound as it entered the interstate, at which time Morris took primary position in the pursuit.
In the video, we see Morris accelerate onto the highway as the Chevy Tahoe comes into view. Morris takes a position behind the Chevy Tahoe as the two vehicles pass several other motorists. Speeds eclipse the 100-mph mark as we see semi trucks, pickups, and crossovers move out of the way.
Around the one-minute mark, the Chevy Tahoe and pursuing police vehicle clear the traffic. Morris takes a position to the right of the Chevy Tahoe, and in a single move, rams the rear end of the SUV. The Chevy Tahoe starts to spin, and according to the report, it strikes the outside concrete wall before ricocheting back across the highway, striking the center divider before coming to a stop.
We see the police officer pull a U-turn after performing the PIT maneuver, showing us the state of the SUV. We see the left-rear tire on the Chevy Tahoe is torn off the wheel. A swarm of police officers surround the vehicle, guns drawn.
