It is amazing that no more people were injured than the two mentioned. My mother was in the middle of this and was run off the road after his tires were blown by the highway patrol. The driver was running all over the road trying to run people off. I am glad that this guy was captured, but I don't understand why traffic was not stopped. Too many people's lives were put in danger. Maybe some time of training needs to be done in order to stop traffic in situations like this.

I am glad they got that crazy fool. I am always afraid of something like this happening when I am driving. I don't even like to look at folks while I am driving because folks are just crazy.

Glad that your mother and others were not injured. We know that it had to be very frightening for them.

Considering how fast the guy was driving (100 mph or faster), there literally would have been no time to do it. I'm just glad no-one seems to be seriously hurt.

Glad to hear no one else was hurt or injured. This could have turned into a serious tragedy.

For me, I am just glad the fuzz got him. The FUZZ should never call off a chase until that put the stainless steel bracelets on the criminal.

I'm so impressed with you, dork. By the way, what is a "thap"? See your post above. dork-de-dork-de-dork.... azz
I thought you never change your screen name? "Thap" was a typo, but your post made absolutely no sense...a typo is one thing...not knowing how to write is another!

The picture looked to me like he was white...so why not make some comment about his race? You only feel race is important when they are black? So what would you call this, a WOC crime ( White on cop)?

You are nothing more than "trailer trash" racist scum who will never amount to anything, so you will blame everything on NAACP!

Real World...my apologies...I figured out that the imposter is not you...it is DANNI

Hey Danni ( or whatever you don't want me to refer to you as)...You just don't give it a rest do you? Just one more indicating sign of a psycho!
