Florida Highway Patrol Pursuit Reaches 142 MPH, Cruiser Catches Fire

Here is something you don’t see every day. A Florida Highway Patrol trooper pulls a U-turn across a highway median, accelerating to more than 140 mph to catch up with a vehicle going 20 over.

Impressively (if not a bit recklessly) the trooper catches up with the vehicle he was pursuing, and that vehicle’s driver decides to pull over to the left, stopping in the center median of the divided highway.

One thing 142 mph reliably does to a car’s engine is heat it up. A lot. And that center median? It was covered in dry grass.

You know what happens next. And now you can see it.

  1. Update: Colonel Gene S. Spaulding, director of the Florida Highway Patrol, released the following statement:

    “The Florida Highway Patrol is committed to public safety and troopers must balance the need to quickly intercept unsafe drivers while using due care to conduct traffic enforcement activities. In this instance, FHP immediately reviewed the incident and assigned additional training to the responding trooper [Bryan Zegers] on May 1, 2018, to improve overall public safety.”

  2. Why he didn’t remove all of his important personal belongings especially his guns and ammo is beyond me, because he certainly had plenty of time to safely remove them. He just kinda panicked and didn’t have any common sense, the smartest guy decision he made that day was letting the driver go. Firefighters in Florida really do earn their keep because It doesn’t take much to start a fire there, especially in the South Florida because it’s so dry down there that just using a weed eater or putting out a cigarette can start a fire.

  3. He will be commended for this and the department will talk about how he risked his life to keep the public safe. Get his picture taken and everyone will comment "thank you for all you do, glad your safe"

    All for being a fuckin dumbass.

  4. "Suddenly the grass starts to catch on fire real quick." It's almost like this trooper had no idea about what is under a car, the hazards of parking on grass, or that he himself caused the fire. All he had to do was immediately move the car off the grass to save it and his precious wallet, keys and computer. To top it off, that driving of his was highly suspect and unnecessarily risky. And who knows what trail of fire he left all across the median when he pulled that U-turn? Not the brightest bulb on the tree.
