Suspects in a GMC Yukon SUV recently managed to give Arkansas State Police the slip in a high-speed chase that topped 130 mph. Footage of the chase was posted online, showing the moment that the SUV managed to evade police.
The video is just over eight-minutes long, and shows the chase in its entirety as captured by the dash cam in the lead police officer’s patrol car.
As the video gets under way, we see a GMC Yukon enter the highway ahead of the police cruiser. The Yukon starts to accelerate away from the cruiser, and before long, the officer is traveling at more than 120 mph. The officer hits the lights and siren as the SUV slices between traffic and accelerates down the freeway.
Around the two-minute, 10-second mark, we see the GMC Yukon abruptly veer off down an exit, with police close behind. The SUV blasts across an intersection and rejoins the freeway, while the police officer slows down in order to avoid a possible collision at the red light.
The cruiser manages to quickly catch up with the Yukon as it once again travels at triple-digit speeds. The SUV exits again around the three-minute mark, with police once again in hot pursuit. In a dramatic moment, the driver in the SUV pulls a U-turn right in front of the police cruiser, and the two vehicles collide in the process. The driver then weaves through a car wash around the four-minute mark.
The SUV later takes off into a residential zone around the four-minute, 20-second mark. The officer in pursuit is heard relaying updates on where the SUV is headed to dispatch as the GMC Yukon speeds through the sleepy residential streets. Around the five-minute, 40-second mark, the GMC blows through a stop sign, while the police officer in pursuit applies the brakes, giving the driver in the SUV the opportunity needed to escape.
