I saw one of my friends has posted a notice on Facebook that he was indirectly involved in a high speed chase that ended in a crash. I later read about it in the paper, and he posted his own account of it, which I will copy here. I think this goes to show us that you really can be a victim at any time, for no apparent reason, this time just driving a similar truck to the bad guys "enemy" was enough. I think for the most part the person getting chased did an alright job, especially getting to the police station.
"OK...... Here is the story. last night on the way home from fall river, i was following my friend on 195 when this car comes flying up from behind and pulls on the side of my friend.. The person in the passenger side of this car starts throwing full unopened beer cans at my friends truck. my friend makes a quick exit on exit 4 and i follow. the car throwing beer cans was in the middle lane and couldn't take the exit. They jack on the brakes skidding down the highway, and then reverse to take exit 4 where this moron is trying to pass me on the off ramp. we get off the off ramp on to 103 and the car pulls into the on coming traffic lane to the left of me and passes trying to push me off the road. i slow and let him go past. He then pulls on the side of my friend again and is trying to push him off the road and proceeds to throw more unopened beer cans at him. my friend makes a right at the appliance center and speeds up to try and lose these ********. the car follows and pulls on the side again and continues throwing beer cans. now they are both doing like 60 down garners neck rd taking up both lanes. as they start to come up on the intersection at garners neck and rt 6 the car falls back a lil and gets behind my friend who is also slowing for the light and i am behind both of them. the light turns yellow and my friend goes, the car of course guns it and pulls on the rite of him where he tries to pass and block the road. he slams into the passenger side of my friends truck. my friend who was trying to avoid the collision was forced to turn left up rt6 when he was trying to go straight and then pull into the police station. so after the collision my friend speeds up on rt 6 to try and lose these guys once again they of course catch up, pull on the side and throw more beer cans. so my friend takes a quick rite onto Michael st on the side of Texaco. The car who was to far left to make the turn going as fast as they were passed it. i took the rite and got back behind my friend. a few seconds later i see headlights coming up from behind and quick, so i pull to the middle of the road and slow down. the car pulls into a lawn on the left of me an almost smashes head on into a telephone pole. now my friend has a decent lead on these retards so they are flying to try and catch up as they are catching up my friend pulls into the Swansea pd and stops.. they are about to do the same until they realized it was a police station. they kept going i pulled in and ran in to grab an officer. an officer comes out, hops in his car, and ask which way they went. as i am telling him witch way they went, these idiots come driving back by the police station when clearly i yell "THAT'S THEM!!!" the cop turns on his lights and pulls out. the car however speeds up and takes a right past the Jr high. they got the guys and we spent a few hours filling out police reports.. To top this whole ordeal off, turns out one of these 3 losers got beet up or something at some club or bar in fall river, and the guys that did it jumped into a black truck.. they just attacked the first black truck they saw.. isn't that just lovely???
What do you guys think? This was in RI, by the way.
