18-year-old Kevonte Dekorey Austin escaped from his work-release program and took a Toyota Tacoma for a joyride and a police chase.
What happened next was totally crazy. A high-speed chase flew down US 371, hitting speeds over 110 miles per hour, and the way it ended could’ve resulted in several people losing their lives.
Deputies tossed spike strips across the highway and the inexperienced teenage driver flew off the road and kept going. This is where it begins to look like a Fast and Furious stunt! The driver flies off the road and then jumps OVER another road, over a fence, and lands ON TOP of another car. The woman inside the car was unbelievably not injured.
That’s where the chase ends and authorities put him back in custody. He will probably be locked up for a long time after this crazy car chase.

Here’s the highlight of the video. It looks like a stunt from an action movie like Fast and Furious or a scene from a game like Grand Theft Auto. Well that’s odd, isn’t that what this guy is getting locked up for?
