What normally happens in the movies:
We have seen it on television and the Need for Speed video game built a franchise on it, but running from the law in a $200,000+ sports car at triple-digit speeds is not something that really happens, right? Well, one Canadian did it and even came pretty close to getting away.
A police officer in Port Moody, British Columbia, crashed his cruiser Wednesday afternoon after chasing a Ferrari on the Barnet Highway. The officer noticed the red Ferrari driving erratically and dangerously fast. After taking chase and while trying to close the distance between him and the Ferrari, the officer lost control of his cruiser and sideswiped a van. No one was hurt in the crash.
Although the Ferrari was able to get away, the driver has since been identified and the investigation is continuing.
What normally happens in real life:
An Oregon trooper pulled over six exotic sports cars driving well over the speed limit on Thursday. The best part is he was able to pull them all over at the same time. The cars included a Gallardo, F430, NSX, 599 GTB, F40, and another not-pictured Ferrari. Senior Trooper David Peterson cited all the drivers for Speed Racing. (Take notice of the personalized plates)
