At first I was wondering how you manage to crash on a highway at those piddly speeds, but the driver was just a moron.

Granted, good try to lose the cop when switching the ramp, but you don't advertise your move by braking beforehand and you certainly don't want to ram the divider.

The video title said 109mps, meters per second? Miles per second?

At any rate, I've seen a car get airborne off a barrier, and was amazed my car hadn't been hit when it crashed down inches from my driver side mirror. I knew she (yes, a woman driver) was going to be a problem when she kept braking on the ice, so I slid into the empty spot that had just opened up to the right (morning rush hour on I-69 in Flint, MI). Just as I got over, she hit her brakes once again, on an overpass, and started fishtailing - then BAM into the center barrier and her chevette went up into the air.

I was unable to stop safely until I was a bit down the road, and I could already hear sirens by the time I was finished looking over my car. I shrugged and finished my trip to work.

The only thing he needs now is a lead based trans-cranial implant.

Was trying to figure out where this crash happened.  More info, plus pics of the 2 cars involved here:  http://fox6now.com/2013/10/29/accused-drunk-driver-leads-deputies-on- c hase-reaching-100-mph/

I was wondering where this happened,  Based on the above report, it happened where I thought it did.  That area is a pain in the butt even when your not drunk.

More interesting video from the 2nd and 3rd units responding. The 2nd unit crashes into the drunk driver, could not see a damn thing through the dirt/dust kicked up when the drunk's car crashed into the barrier.

That dude needs to sit in jail for a LONG time. I started thinking what might have happened if the roads had been busier - I'd hopefully have pulled over, seeing the action coming up from behind, but who is to say he still doesn't plow me from behind as I sit on the side of the road? Incredibly dangerous.

Worse, you can't just "tag" the car with a beacon - because that driver was an active threat to anybody else on the road. They had to pursue and stop him.

I certainly support the police getting people like this off the street, and at the same time, I disagree with MADD-influenced tactics like waiting for people leaving the bar or arresting people who might have alcohol in their system, but are not actually impaired. I say that as somebody who does not drink.

LesserEvil: I disagree with MADD-influenced tactics


To be fair, so do most of the original MADD founders. It's unfortunate that MADD was taken over by lunatics, they did actually start out as a sensible organization aimed at educating people and enacting reasonable laws before they were taken over by a bunch of unhinged neo-prohibitionists.

Yeah, too bad. Perfect conditions too, no other cars or pedestrians around to get taken out. The cops should have dragged him out of his car and run over him a couple of times.

He's not going to be drinking much of anything other than pruno for a few decades.

Somewhere in that area, yes.  Its in the Stadium interchange area, but I cant figure out exactly where.  The top video of the 3 on the link I posted shows an extended version of the chase, and I do not recognize any of that area, but I do have to admit that I have not been in that area after dark.  I have to say it was heading south from Vilet St.

None of the local news sites give more info.

Found more info: On Tuesday at about 2:45 a.m., a Milwaukee County deputy attempted to stop a vehicle that was being driven the wrong way, heading southbound in the northbound lanes, on N. Mayfair Road just south of Bluemound Road in Wauwatosa. The vehicle cut across the construction zone to get to the eastbound I94 ramp at Highway 100 and did not stop for the deputy.
The subject vehicle, a Ford Taurus, driven by Kevin B. Hutchins, age 40, of Milwaukee, swerved through all lanes of traffic, and the high speed pursuit reached speeds of 109 mph. The vehicle exited at S. 70th Street, re-entered the freeway at 68th Street, and again exited at S. Hawley Road to Vliet Street. Multiple squads responded to assist with the pursuit as the vehicle headed east on Vliet Street to US-41 southbound.
Hutchins lost control of his vehicle between the southbound-through lanes and the ramp from the North to the East, striking attenuator barrels and the median wall. His vehicle went airborne and collided with the deputy's squad, striking the front window and injuring the deputy. The Taurus then came to a rest facing north on the ramp in the Stadium Interchange, almost seven miles into the pursuit.
The second squad involved in the pursuit struck the attenuator barrels that were airborne and thrown into traffic lanes after being hit by the Taurus. Her squad came to rest in the southbound-through lanes in the Stadium interchange.
Hutchins was uncooperative, belligerent and verbally abusive to the deputies and the Milwaukee Fire Department emergency responders. He smelled strongly of an alcoholic beverage, but refused to say where he had been drinking.
