This is What Happens When you Try Dukes of Hazzard in Real Life

If you follow the local news in Louisiana you might have heard a story about a police chase resulting in a crazy car crash. If you don’t live in Louisiana, I wanted to bring it to your attention because frankly this is some next level driving here. While the person driving the car was only 18-years-old and probably never saw Dukes of Hazzard in his entire life, that didn’t stop Kevonte Dekorey Austin, an escaped work-release participant, to try something incredibly insane and equally dumb. According to KSLA,

Webster Sheriff Gary Sexton said the events began to unfold when a deputy pulled over the driver of a Toyota Tacoma speeding on U.S. Highway 371. As the deputy spoke with the driver outside the pickup, the truck’s passenger slid into the driver’s seat and sped off. Sheriff’s deputies chased Austin at speeds reaching 115 miles per hour. The chase took deputies to Springhill before heading south on Hwy. 371. Austin lost control of the Tacoma when it hit spike strips deputies had set out at Hwy. 371 at U.S. Highway 80 north of Dixie Inn. The pickup went airborne and landed on a Toyota Corolla parked at a restaurant. Barbara Harlon was in that car and escaped unhurt by climbing out a passenger door. “I felt around to see if I was hurt and could tell that I was okay,” Harlon said. “God was with me.”

Austin was taken into custody and miraculously not one got seriously injured.   What’s even more crazy is that there’s an actual video of the whole thing.  No word on how long Austin will be detained or in jail but Boss Hog would be mighty proud of this jump.
