The crash is so spectacular it looks like a Hollywood stunt but escaped inmate Kevonte Austin is facing very real consequences.
Austin, 18, to avoid serious injury on Tuesday when the stolen pickup truck he was driving get airborne during a police chase in Dixie Inn, Louisiana, Webster Parish Sheriff Gary Sexton told the Huffington Post.
The truck territory on an occupied auto in a parking lot.Miraculously, the woman in the other vehicle was not injured as well.
We are all astounded it turned out as well as it did, Sexton said.
Seriously, act movies have nothing on this:
The trouble started when a sheriffs representative pulled over the operator of the truck for speeding with Austin sitting in the passenger sit. While the motorist spoke with the representative outside private vehicles as a decoy, Austin moved behind the pedal and sped off, according to Sexton.
The suspect, who weeks later had ditched a work-release curriculum after finishing his alteration, then extended the law on a 50 -mile pursuit at velocities up to 115 miles an hour, ranging various officers off the road, the sheriff said.
While trying to avoid a roadblock, Austin lost hold of the truck, the sheriff replied. He dashed down, then up a grass divider, moving through the breeze until the pickup plowed into the parked car.
The drama didnt goal there. Austin moved to another occupied auto and is seeking to grab a woman before he was apprehended, the sheriff added. As of Wednesday afternoon, he remained in a Webster Parish jail charged with attempted first-degree assassination of a police officer, exasperated flight, struggled car-jacking and belonging of a stolen vehicle. He would be transferred to his previous facility in Caddo Parish where he was doing time for car fraud and a probation abuse after he was fully treated, Sexton said.
The original operator, 23 -year-old Durioki Hawkins, faces fees of harboring a fugitive and self-possession of a embezzled vehicle.
