World's Wildest Car Chases

World's Wildest Car Chases

Living in So Cal means that in the afternoon you're not faced with cartoons. It's judge shows and every so often you get a couple of surprises in the middle of them in the form of a car chase.

Oh, don't act as if you're above a good car chase. No one is above a good car chase and they happen a lot here. It's sort of the unofficial sport of the local stations. We watch with the intent on seeing some crazy ending. Because that's all it is - the moments before the shit hits the fan and we can't pull our eyes away from it.

With that in mind, here's all the satisfaction without any of the waiting.. well, if you skip the story. But if you read it, then perhaps it'll tease you enough for a massive car accident.
A single car crash on Interstate 675 shut down the southbound lanes in Sugarcreek Twp. for six hours Monday.

Brennan S. Eden, 19, of Mason, Ohio, lost control of his car and slammed into the concrete pillar of a bridge south of Indian Ripple Road about 7:15 a.m.

The force of the crash broke the car into three pieces and Brennan was ejected.

Witnesses said moments before the crash, Brennan was passing other drivers at speeds of at least 100 mph. He crashed when he drove off the left side of the roadway while passing a Sugarcreek Twp. police car. The crash was caught on that officer's cruiser camera.

"He went down into the median, into the grass, hit the guardrail, went airborne and the car hit the center post of the bridge and literally exploded into three main pieces," said witness Mark Riley.
So without further waiting, here's your reward for reading...

All I know is that I want to play GTA with this kid. He's a natural. I can only imagine this happening with the kid honking his "Dixie" horn as he's going airborne. Though he probably didn't see the cop until it was too late to really do anything about it.. other than say OH SHI-

Then again, seeing the officer was probably what made him run off the road. I've seen people drive off the road or become shit stir crazy when they see a cop. So him hauling ass on the not-so-legal parts of the highway and the coming up on a cop got him all fucked up and before he knew it, he went straight for that median.

But for him to survive that car accident is something else entirely. I'm not sure how the hell he did it. I mean, look at that - the car is smashed into a zillion little pieces and he takes off with such craziness.

Then again, that's what we love about car accidents/police chases and all that shit caught on camera. You just don't know what's going to happen. Take this next video as an example. It teaches us the valuable lesson of if at first you don't succeed, spin, spin and spin again...

I want his car. How much damage did it take and it still kept going. Then it got all messed up in the end. But it looked like he was going for yet one more spin. Which would have owned.

Though it wouldn't have owned as much as a whistle tip..

Ah, it's been far too long since I've seen that clip. Now that did bring back old internet memories long before meme's were all the rage to quote and make songs about. As you can tell from there being no remix of that.

But let's go back to the unpredictable nature of these car chases. Look at what could possibly be the craziest driver around.. or at least in Orange County.

I lost it when she stopped and got out of the car to taunt the police officers. Especially since her car just kept going and she was almost shit out of luck. I like to imagine she is saying "What the fuck, stop tailgating me, asshole!"

Car chases puzzle me, does anyone ever get away? I mean, the longer you go on the more cop cars are going to be following you and after a while there's gonna be an helicopter on your ass.
What's the reasoning here? "Maybe if I keep it up long enough they'll get tired?"

Then again, people sometimes do get away.... But not in places like LA that have news and police choppers in the air almost 24/7 and on the scene within moments of the chase. In some places, unless the person is a known felon, they have to break off the chase due to safety reasons.

But otherwise running is a no win situation. There's only two ways it can go. You can either get caught eventually and add a laundry list of charges to your record or this could happen...

Yes.. the guy died. No, the car didn't smash his head... but the accident alone killed him. So yeah... it's probably better to just give up and take your ticket.
