Getaway chases may look exciting on television, but they’re very dangerous in real life. Officers take training courses to keep themselves and the public as safe as possible during high speed chases, but accidents do happen.
After all, the perpetrators of a crime don’t have this kind of training. A Rockdale County Sheriff’s cruiser was wrecked during a long high-speed chase down I-20. The chase started in Conyers when police saw a group of young men trying to enter vehicles. Conyers and Rockdale County police chased them all the way to Martin Luther King Boulevard in Atlanta.
There, the young men abandoned the vehicle and ran off. One of the perpetrators, a 13-year-old, was captured. There is a manhunt for the other three. The chase happened early on a Saturday morning, when traffic would have been light. But what if it has been the start of rush hour? A serious accident could have happened.
