A 19-year-old man from Oklahoma was arrested after leading police on a 208-mile-per-hour chase last Saturday in a 2011 Ford Mustang.
According to Fox News, Hector Fraire was initially clocked doing just 84 mph on Oklahoma City’s Kilpatrick Turnpike when police attempted to pull him over. But instead of stopping, Fraire attempted to outrun police by accelerating and deactivating his headlamps and taillights. His heavily-modified Ford Mustang was then scanned speeding at 176 mph at one point, and later, 208 mph.
As the pursuing police lost contact with Hector Fraire’s Ford Mustang, they radioed ahead seeking anyone who could help apprehend the driver. A Deputy from Canadian County, who was positioned in a nearby parking lot, was somehow able to intercept the car. Fox News reports that Fraire was arrested, receiving charges of reckless driving and felony eluding.
The 2011 Ford Mustang GT was the first to use the 5.0-liter Coyote V8, which peaked at about 412 horsepower when fueled with 91-octane gasoline – certainly not enough power to propel the pony car to 208 mph. We don’t know what modifications Fraire’s Ford Mustang was fitted with, but at the risk of sounding like we condone his actions, we rather wish we could take a peek.
