This motorcyclist got in a high speed chase with police today, 6/5/13 at speeds of 80+ MPH. He started knocking off the mirrors from 3 cars h passes, breaking his hand/wrist/forearm & suddenly realized he was in immense pain. He tore off his gloves, then seems to go in & out of consciousness & lowers his head as he appeared to be crying (yes even with his helmet on), no longer looking where he is going, while steering with one hand due to the broken hand/wrist/forearm, swerving & jerking the motorcycle in sudden brake-like motions – ALL AT HIGH SPEEDS!!!! Never felt so anxious & “scared” for an ending. As emotionally invested in the suspect & a chase as could be – given the circumstances. You could see his pain, you could see his torment, you could see his dilemma – yet he fought through extreme pain to fight on & refused to give up & continue flying down the highway with 1 hand steering the way! No other ending, but crashing, eating pavement to a bloody red asphalt ending seemed possible! Never felt that way about a chase before. Truly thought we were moments away from witnessing a bloody death. & usually I’m rooting for the suspect to get away just in general, but this time I’m like PLEASE PULL OVER YOUR PAIN IS SO OBVIOUS IT’S KILLING ME TO WATCH THIS!!!
