Police chase video: Thief smashes car through rail crossing

British police have released dramatic footage of a high-speed car chase in which a car thief tried to evade officers by crashing a stolen Mercedes C180 through a rail crossing barrier. The June 2010 incident began when 20-year-old Terence Fowler refused to pull over for police and tried to get away at over 90 miles (145 kilometres) an hour. During the pursuit, Fowler overtook vehicles in the face of oncoming traffic and, at one point, knocked off another car's wing mirror. Police gave up their chase when Fowler smashed through the rail crossing barrier moments before the arrival of a high-speed train. Police found the car abandoned and arrested Fowler after finding his blood on the broken windscreen. Fowler admitted dangerous driving at Peterborough Crown Court and was jailed for 3.5 years on Thursday. RT on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/RTnews RT on Twitter: http://twitter.com/RT_com

San Francisco Police Chase (December 29, 2014)
SAN FRANCISCO -- Police on Tuesday released the identities of two San Francisco men suspected of leading police on a wild hour-and-a-half long, 57-mile chase Monday morning in a stolen newspaper delivery van. Andrew Rojas, 30, the alleged driver of the stolen San Francisco Chronicle van, and his passenger, 53-year-old Rudolph "Rudy" Martinez, were arrested on suspicion of including vehicle theft, assault on police, evading police and conspiracy among other charges. The chase started in San Francisco and led officers across the San Mateo Bridge into the East Bay, San Francisco police Officer Albie Esparza said. Just before 8:30 a.m. Monday, police attempted to pull over the San Francisco Chronicle van at Keith Street and Palou Avenue in the city's Bayview neighborhood after it had been reported stolen from a location in the Castro several hours earlier, police said. During the pursuit in San Francisco, the driver of the van rammed an officer's patrol car. The officer was not injured, Esparza said. The subsequent chase wound south on the Peninsula and across the bridge to Hayward, where San Francisco officers ended the chase and the California Highway Patrol took over. The pursuit continued on Interstate 880 and then onto city streets in Hayward and into San Leandro. There, the van almost struck a San Leandro police officer on a motorcycle on Williams Street, in a parking lot near East 14th Street, police said. The driver of the van eventually stopped in front of a Chase Bank branch on Parrott Street near East 14th Street, and the passenger jumped out and stole a bicycle at the bank, police said. Police caught the passenger shortly after and arrested him, San Leandro police Lt. Robert McManus said. Meanwhile, the driver of the stolen van drove into a cul-de-sac on Chabot Terrace near Lake Chabot Park in Castro Valley, where he stopped the van, jumped out and ran. About 10:45 a.m., officers found the suspect in San Leandro Creek, under a bridge in Lake Chabot Park. He was arrested and booked into the Santa Rita Jail. Both are slated to be arraigned on their respective charges later this week.

JCB Joyride: Cops chase down stolen forklift
An English man who stole a JCB forklift in July and tore through local roads and a cemetery causing thousands of pounds of damage was jailed for four and a half years on Monday. Police helicopter video showed Steven Regan's rampage through the village of Church Warsop, near Mansfield in Nottinghamshire. He was initially detected on CCTV driving the vehicle at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour (32 kilometres per hour) which prosecutor Jon Fountain claimed was an excessive speed for that type of vehicle. Regan, in an alleged attempt to escape capture, went off-road and tore through fields, hedges and the local graveyard, causing an estimated 15,000 pounds (23,000 US dollars) worth of damage.
