Minnesota Sheriff Releases Deadly Police Chase Video
I was anything but a good kid when I was in my mid-teens but I never stole a car. That is if you don't count rolling my parent's car down the driveway after they were asleep and joyriding all night.
According to FOX 9 the Ramsey County Sheriff's Department recently released the police car dashcam video and it's a wonder more people weren't killed or injured during this chase.
This turned out to be anything but a "joyride." This police chase in Maplewood, Minnesota ended tragically for these mid-teen kids in Ramsey County. 15-year-old Alyjah Thomas and 14-year-old Marcoz Paramo lost their lives after the vehicle they had stolen crashed during a high-speed police chase through Maplewood.
Two other teens were seriously injured and the driver, that fled the scene of the crash and was later apprehended, was later arrested and now faces vehicular homicide charges.
The video shows a pretty extensive police chase through Maplewood, Minnesota on Larpenteur Avenue before the vehicle carrying the 5 teens crashed.
After trying to stop the vehicle, which was reported stolen, the driver took offer and the chase was on. After what seemed like a pretty lengthy chase the vehicle carrying the 5 teens crashed near Larpenteur Avenue & Chamber Street killing two teens and seriously injuring two other teens in the car.
Car thefts in the Twin Cities seem to be an all too common occurrence. Why anyone thinks they can outrun the police, I don't know. Does anyone actually getaway?
Anyway, there are two teens dead, two seriously injured and the driver will most likely be locked up.
