Corvette-Driving Suspect Outruns Police During High-Speed Chase

But the eye in the sky never lost sight of the iconic sports car.


The Chevy Corvette is one of the best bang-for-your-buck sports cars on the market. For a starting price ofjust $55,495, you can own a Corvette Stingray with 460 horsepower and a 0-60 mph time of 3.7 seconds. Unfortunately, that means irresponsible individuals can also reach dangerously high speeds with less financial expenditure than you might think. 

Last week, a suspect in Volusia County, Florida led police on a high-speed pursuit in a rented Chevy Corvette. In the video below, the car can be seen evading police, weaving through traffic and coming within inches of other vehicles. Ground units appear unable to keep up with the red Corvette as it barrels down the street. On numerous occasions the vehicle is on the wrong side of the road, blowing through traffic signals and showing little regard to other human life.

According to reports, one of the alleged operators were arrested for possession of crack cocaine, intent to distribute, trafficking heroin—and presumably evading police. The other person in the car had not been located as of last week's reports. 

This video serves as a great reminder that no matter how fast your getaway car is, you won't be able to outrun the eye in the sky.
