Just after 11 am on July 5, 2019, Destiny Talora Hawkins stole a Ferndale Police Department cruiser and went for a joyride, blasting rap music and driving dangerously fast. According to the police car’s event data recorder, Hawkins adventure hit speeds of 100 miles per hour in a 35 zone and 92 in a 25 zone.
Hawkins was driving well over 80 miles per hour and eluding multiple pursuing units when her joyride came to an abrupt end, courtesy of a gold GMC Yukon at the intersection of 7 Mile and Stoepel in Detroit, Michigan.
This footage, captured on the dash camera of an oncoming Toyota Prius, was provided to the Ferndale Police Department in the course of their investigation. The driver of the Prius, Victor Grant, quickly swerved to avoid a high-speed head-on collision with the Yukon, narrowly escaping most of the oncoming chaos. The Prius received driver’s side rear end damage, and Grant was fortunately uninjured.
Police dash camera and body-worn camera footage from this incident have been posted separately.
