This is the FIRST Police video I have ever seen where the car being chased went airborne, then exploded! Did the officer stop the video? It sure looked like it.

1) The vehicle didn't explode, it caught fire.

2) It's quite clear the video wasn't stopped at any time during the incident.

3) I've seen more than one other video where a car being pursued went airborne after riding up a divider or embankment.

Really? is just a cop hater. Its obvious to anyone with half a brain that this video was unaltered. The burst of fire was simple the oil pan getting ripped off and the hot oil igniting. Really? should grow up and get a life

I have seen my hare of crashes and at least three fatal. People just don't get it yo can't out run the radio or the vehicles.

This is why roundabouts need to be banned! Oh, and really? You are an idiot. Police can't stop their cameras.

Actually, Police can stop the cameras. In this case they did not appear to however. I will say this, in most departments if a camera is stopped during an incident it will raise red flags and there will most likely be an investigation. Cameras are there to protect the police as well as the public.

In this video, I agree with the other poster - airborne and something was damaged, most likely a fuel line, and the hot exhaust caught it on fire. Not sure of the outcome but you run, you get what comes your way..

I once saw a transmission explode from lack of fluid. Over heated and ignited the fumes.
