Thumbs down Challenger Hellcat Tries to Outrun Cops @ 130+ MPH!

It's never a good idea to drive Drunk with No insurance, on the shoulder at 130+ MPH with Cops on your Azz.

https://www.foxnews.com/auto/speeder...lenger-hellcat

Speeder runs from cops at 130 mph and rolls his Dodge Challenger Hellcat

Driving on the shoulder is always bad, especially when you do it at 130 mph.

A Colorado man was arrested Tuesday night after leading police on a high-speed chase on I-70 in his Dodge Challenger Hellcat muscle car.

Police had an eye out for him after receiving reports of a reckless driver on the highway, and one spotted him heading westbound in heavy traffic near Edwards, according to KMGH.

When the officer tried to pull him over, the driver, Rafael Cotlear, accelerated to at least 130 mph and passed cars on the shoulder to get away.

The pursuit was called off for safety reasons, but an off-duty officer soon called in the news that the car had rolled off the road across the median and into the eastbound lanes.

Traffic was stopped for about an hour as emergency crews worked on the scene, and Cotlear was brought to a hospital with minor injuries before being taken into custody and booked on a DUI charge, along with reckless driving, reckless endangerment, exhibition of speed, damage to a highway structure and no proof of insurance.

The only positive outcome of this is that nobody was killed!

When I saw the article on a news site this morning, I thought about how they pointed out the specific model of car in the headline and within the article.
There's hundreds of car chases and hundreds of DUI related car crashes and the make/model of the vehicle isn't usually mentioned.

Apparently they consider the Challenger Hellcat to be a whole different, special thing!

And, they're right!

Yup! and also shows that the Challenger can sure take a high speed rolling crash pretty well from the looks of the cabin...

How many Hellcat's have ended up like this now? Quite a few I think...I don't think I have seen a Demon yet involved in something like this...and I hope we never do! Glad everyone was ok.
