This video contains exclusive footage of a trooper reaching – and sustaining – 149 miles per hour as part of a pursuit that took place in New Mexico on October 26, 2018.
Earlier in the day on the 26th there had been an attempted armed robbery in Gallup, New Mexico and officers statewide were on the lookout for the getaway car: a silver Honda Accord with three teenage male occupants.
When a State Trooper came across a car matching the description later that night, he lucked out: the vehicle’s registration was expired, which meant easy probable cause for a stop.
If the car would stop.
The Honda took off and a pursuit ensued. The fleeing driver pushed his Accord over 120 miles per hour, but the real speed came from one of the pursuing troopers. That trooper had bee tasked with getting ahead of the pursuit to set up spike strips, and the only way to get in front of a high-speed chase is to go even faster.
As seen in this video, the trooper floored it, cruising for well over a minute at 140+ miles per hour, sustaining 149 miles per hour for part of that run.
Bonus material: this video contains audio that the public rarely (if ever) gets to hear. You’ll know when it starts.
