Scary Police Chase Ends In A Roll Over Accident

Police and prosecutors in Louisiana have released dashcam video of a crazy chase which involved multiple crashes and several close calls.

The video starts out innocently enough, but things pick up quickly as the officer begins chasing a stolen Nissan Titan. The driver, 27-year-old Cody Davis, refused to stop and can be seen accelerating away and passing several vehicles in a residential neighborhood.

The truck then approaches an intersection, where Davis drives into oncoming traffic to avoid a number of vehicles that were stopped at the light. This is a dangerous situation and he narrowly avoids hitting two cars. Unfortunately, a Toyota was turning left at the time and ended up crashing into the side of the Titan.

Undeterred, Davis continues to elude police and can be seen sideswiping a Honda in order to pass a slower vehicle in front of him. He then speeds up and drives into oncoming traffic to get around a slow moving box truck.

After successfully making it through an intersection, Davis once again drives into oncoming traffic and has a close call with another vehicle. To avoid being hit by other vehicles, Davis rapidly returns to the correct lane but does so too quickly. As a result, he slams into the curb.

After another close call with a classic Corvette, Davis blows through a red light and speeds away. Unbeknownst to everyone, the chase is about to come to a dramatic end.

In an attempt to pass two slower moving vehicles, Davis once again attempts to drive into oncoming traffic. This time, however, he clips a white pickup which causes it to roll over. The Titan, on the other hand, ends up crashing into a Toyota Tundra. A number of officers descend onto the scene and eventually pull Davis from the truck.

Davis’ trial just wrapped up and local NBC affiliate KPLC reports he was found guilty of a number of crimes including aggravated flight from an officer, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and aggravated criminal damage to property. Davis was already a convicted felon and part of the video shows a gun being thrown from the Titan and bouncing off the ground. For that part, Davis was charged with illegal possession of a stolen firearm, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and obstruction of justice by tampering with evidence.

Sentencing is scheduled for November 2nd and Calcasieu Parish Assistant District Attorney Charles Robinson told the station “I don’t think there’s a person who could put eyes on this dash camera and not be absolutely appalled that this happened and thrilled that he’s found guilty.”

    Not sure what to say here. Part of me thinks that chasing after this guy at nearly 80mph down a crowded, urban street is nearly as dangerous as the guy that’s try to escape. However, if the police don’t chase, it kinda gives criminals free reign. Tough call.

    • Bo Hanan

      Cops in Colorado stopped doing this when a man was killed in the crossfire and his family sued the hell out of the Denver Police and the cop who started, then continued the chase. The family won. So everybody injured in the filming of this video should sue the police. Dumbest crap I’ve ever seen.

    POS driver of Titan should be charged with attempted murder.

    jast shoot da mada facker !!!

  • This police chase absolutely made no sense. They guy stole a truck. What good is that truck now to the owner? They had a clear description of the stolen truck and license plate. They should have let him go, and have multiple officers converge on the area. They would have caught him eventually in a safe way. Now at least 5 innocent drivers have had their cars, day, and quite possibly lives ruined in all those crashes. Ridiculous..
