A Wild And Dangerous Joyride

An Illinois police department has released dashboard camera footage from a chase that involved a stolen bulldozer being used to crush a police cruiser. The Kankakee Police Department released the dashcam footage from the early morning Aug. 24 incident, which investigators said featured Austin White, 18, stealing the bulldozer from a construction site and taking it for a drive around the streets of Kankakee. The footage includes several different angles of the chase, including the moment the bulldozer backed over a patrol car as the driving officer fled the vehicle. The video also shows numerous officers chasing the construction vehicle on foot. White, who police said has never had a driver’s license, is being held on at least six felony charges, including attempted murder, criminal damage to property and theft greater than $500.
