Dashcam video of stolen Jeep on 100 MPH joy ride through Chicago shows how thieves get their jollies
A broken but still functional dashcam has yielded video of a Jeep stolen from a parking garage in downtown Chicago buzzing through stoplights, passing a police car (that didn’t offer a chase), missing a pedestrian, hitting an estimated 100 MPH, and stopping for gas and McDonald’s. It’s a rare glimpse of the car thief’s lifestyle behind the wheel.
Although not quite Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride at Disneyland, it’s a hair-raising spectacle, especially considering the genuine hazards presented to the innocent drivers and pedestrians of Chicago.
