Re: CHP cruiser makes an unscheduled stop during a high speed ch

I like how all the cops after him just kept following the car.
The lead cars kept following but some of the tail end squad cars stopped and an ambulance was instantly dispatched.

Just heard on Fox that the LAPD are blaming a "mechanical malfunction" with the vehicle for the accident....

Yea its called you have to brake before the corner buddy!

He could have overcooked the brakes. Those things have got to weigh in over 2 tons with the full Police Pkg and all their equipment. If the fluid was old it wouldn't be too much of a stretch.

Well, it is a Ford. Just see how long the stock brakes last on the tiny little focus.

They train these guys, but it's (the training) is all over too quickly. Cops need to autocross on a regular basis to maintain some proficiency.

That cruiser gained on teh perp rather quickly and tried to brake and steer at the same time. Mechanical malfunction...sure... LOL.
