Dramatic footage has surfaced showing the moment an out-of-control Ford Mustang slammed into a police cruiser in the U.S.
According to local law enforcement, the Pasco Sheriff’s Office in Florida, the driver of the Mustang had recently committed a robbery.
While fleeing the scene of the crime, the driver struck a vehicle and police officers soon initiated a chase. However, the pursuit was called off as the suspect exceeded 100 mph (160 km/h) in their attempt to flee. Police continued to monitor the suspect when he sped through an intersection at approximately 70 mph (112 km/h) while heading northbound on US 19.
Video from the body cam of an officer on the scene shows the moment the Mustang driver crosses the intersection out of control as the muscle car slides towards traffic lights. It then slams into the front of a Ford Explorer Police Interceptor and slides at least a hundred feet down the road before coming to a rest.
Police report that the driver of the Mustang immediately jumped out of the car and fled on foot. Officers gave chase and the suspect was arrested shortly after.
Despite the severity of the crash, both the officer of the Explorer and the suspect avoided serious injury.
