Video: High speed police chase

Posted: July 24, 2014 - 4:19pm

A Mayflower man in his 20s ran the stoplight at Locust Street and College Avenue in front of a CPD officer at about 8:35 Tuesday morning and didn’t stop when the officer turned on his lights and sirens. Instead, the man turned south onto Conway Boulevard and sped up. The man’s 1994 Mercury Sable managed 60 mph on South Center Street, running the stop sign at Hardy Street, and finally got up to about 75 on Sturgis Road, the report states. The driver eventually ran off the road and he and his female passenger got out and tried to make a run for it through a wooded area, but officers ran them down and arrested them without further incident.

The woman had about a gram of what was feared to be “a green leafy vegetable substance,” about a gram of suspected methamphetamine, a multi-colored smoking device and three pills of some sort in her purse. There was a briefcase in the car with digital scales and spoons in it. Also in the car was a Sterling .22 caliber semiautomatic handgun.

Crazy

Your article says speeds of 75mph....this camera dash cam shows speeds in excess of 95mph....impressive you missed that small tidbit. Also, where is the audio?

High speed chases

I am against them for offenses like running a red light. Way to dangerous. I know the road where most of this chase took place. While somewhat rural it is narrow,crooked and hilly. Could have easily turned into a awful accident. Lucky it did not.
