The Cadillac CT5 excels in providing a luxurious, relaxing ride. Unfortunately, the driver behind the wheel of this particular CT5 wasn’t all that relaxed when they opted to test the sedan’s performance against the Arkansas State Police, leading law enforcement on a wild chase topping out at over 140 mph, as seen in the following viral video.
The video was captured by a dash cam mounted in an Arkansas State Police cruiser, and shows the chase from the first moments the Cadillac CT5 is pulled over, up to the driver’s arrest. The whole video is a little over 10 minutes long.
As things get under way, we see the police cruiser pull a U-turn on a two-lane highway and begin to tail the Cadillac CT5. The onscreen info indicates that the incident occurred on July 21st, 2023, around 11:55 local time.
After the Cadillac CT5 pulls over, the cruiser parks right behind it. However, the Caddy isn’t stationary for long, and without warning, takes off down the highway.
What follows is a long stretch of straight-line acceleration, with the readout indicated in the bottom left corner showing speeds in excess of 140 mph. The Cadillac CT5 weaves through traffic while the police cruiser tries to keep up, passing the other cars and trucks on the road and even crossing the yellow dividing line into oncoming traffic in pursuit of the suspect.
Around the three-minute mark, the driver inexplicably turns on the hazard lights, which remain on for the remainder of the chase. Water is seen on the windscreen, indicating some light rain is starting to fall.
The chase continues into a residential area, where the Cadillac CT5 driver tries to lose the police by diving through some backyards. We see some locals shocked to see the two vehicles ripping through their grass. Incredibly, no one gets run over in the off-road stunts.
