A not-so-wise-man once said the best way to drive a car through a tight space was to “drive faster,” with the idea that the added speed would thin the vehicle enough to help get it from Point A to Point B.
We’re guessing San Diego’s latest arrestee made the mistake of thinking there was some truth in that statement. An unnamed man was taken into custody by the San Diego Police Department earlier this week after he tried to drive his getaway car through a very narrow pathway. The incident began along the 15 Freeway, according to a report by NBC San Diego, when members of the CHP were attempting to run a traffic break.
One driver refused to stop, they said; he then sped off and a high-speed chase ensued. Members of the SDPD were quick to join but the whole thing came to a screeching halt after the driver of said vehicle drove his care into a condo complex– and tried to squeeze his Lexus between a condo building and a concrete wall.
Suffice to say the vehicle got stuck and the escape attempt didn’t end like the driver hoped it would. Neither his name, or his charges, have been made public.
