A driver going full throttle on Highway 417 near the Kinburn Side Road accelerated to avoid Ottawa OPP sirens on Tuesday around 1:17 in the afternoon.
Police now ask for your help in locating the driver of the black Audi Q5 with chrome trim. It had Ontario plates and it appeared that a man between the ages of 18 – 29 was at the wheel. He had his pedal to the metal at 159 km an hour. The maximum speed limit is 100 km an hour.
The Ottawa Citizen story explains how the real life road runner left everyone in the dust:
“The officer sparked up his lights and sirens but the SUV only sped up, passing vehicles on the left gravel shoulder and creating a hazardous cloud of dust.”
If you think that you could help to identify the driver, the car or witnessed the situation, please contact Sgt. Derek McLeod at 613-270-9171.
Dangerous, aggressive driving kills people. I swear that some of these guys think they are living in a video game with no real consequences. The video below shows how close one dangerous driver who loves to change lanes comes to having an accident…scary.
