It’s not uncommon for police chases in America to end with the spectacular accidents, but this incident is so extreme it could easily pass as the Michael Bay movie stunt.
In Louisiana, an 18-year-old driving the stolen Toyota Tacoma was pulled over by police, before speeding off and attempting to escape.
With police in pursuit, the pickup hit the set of spike strips at 115 mph, before veering off the road and into the nearby ditch. This launched the truck into the air Dukes of Hazzard style, before it landed on the car parked at a restaurant.
This crash can be seen in the some scary amateur footage by someone who happened to be stood just feet away from oncoming pickup as it went airborne, before landing on the vehicle parked off-screen. He probably got the lot closer to the action than he had bargained for.
According to KSLA, the truck damaged the restaurant and a woman was inside the parked vehicle the truck landed on, but somehow escaped uninjured.
This teeange driver, named Kevonte Dekorey Austin, was apparently an escaped prisoner who stole the vehicle while on work release.
He was sat in the passenger seat when the pickup was initially pulled over for speeding, slipped into the driver seat and took off while this officer was speaking to the driver. How no-one was hurt is beyond belief.
