Exclamation Amazing video of trailer sway ending in wreck (police chase)

Amazing video of a stolen trailer crashing at the end of a police chase due to trailer sway when driver swerves. It affords an excellent view of unrecovered sway from start to finish.

LiveLeak.com - Police chase, crash caught on tape in Charlotte

They were driving a stolen city maintenance truck. The poor lawnmower!

Amazing to see how easy it was for the driver to loose it with such a minor avoidance maneuver.

Whadda bunch o' amateurs. Everyone knows when you foot-bail after a police chase you split up and run in different directions.

Maybe a few days in jail will teach them a lesson.

I really like when they pull down the final runner, and drag him behind the garbage truck, out of view of the helicopter, for a little 'stick-time'.
