We’ve certainly seen our fair share of Ford Mustang involved crashes and police chases over the years – and for the most part, they rarely end well. Whether they crash into other cars while street racing, smash into poles when trying to drift, crash while leaving a cars and coffee meet, or smash into other stolen vehicles, there are many hours of footage of these types of antics all over the internet. Now, we can add yet another clip to that collection, as a Ford Mustang driver recently crashed their pony car when trying to evade police on Highway 101 in Sonoma County.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the driver of this Ford Mustang – which humorously has a custom license plate that says “Will Run” – was speeding in Rohnert Park when law enforcement attempted to pull them over. Rather than complying, the driver instead chose to speed off, confirming that their actions do in fact line up with the statement made by their license plate.
Once on the highway, the Mustang driver hit speeds in excess of 100 miles-per-hour as they attempted to flee police, at which point the ground units backed off and let a helicopter take over. It wasn’t long before the chase ended abruptly, however, as the driver lost control when trying to pass another vehicle at high speed in the center median, causing major damage to the poor pony car.
Amazingly, the 18-year-old Ford Mustang driver only suffered minor injuries, as was the case with the occupants of the Land Rover that he smashed into. However, facing multiple felony charges, it doesn’t seem as if he’ll be attempting to outrun the police again anytime soon, though this apparently wasn’t his first time doing so – it was just his first time getting caught.
