This is the moment armed Dutch police ram a car into a motorway crash barrier in a high-speed chase.
The pursuit had begun after a shooting in Vught, a town in the southern Netherlands.
It ended after a terrifying game of cat and mouse with a police patrol car on a motorway near Zoetermeer in the Western Netherlands.
A police video of the chase begins with the cops shouting instructions at a car stopped on the motorway’s hard shoulder but it suddenly speeds off, with the police in hot pursuit.
Then the patrol car rams the fugutives’ car from behind forcing it to spin into a crash barrier before coming to a halt.
Police leap out of their vehicles and run towards the crooks with their guns drawn, shouting at them to get down on the tarmac on their stomachs.
The crooks can be seen exiting the vehicle and complying as the footage ends.
The incident reportedly took place in the summer of 2021 but the spectacular footage has only been made available by the police now.
The suspects, who have not been named, but who reportedly included two 23-year-olds and one 21-year-old, were arrested after the Peugeot 206 – owned by the 21-year-old’s mother – was rammed off the road.
The police said that they had found multiple firearms in the vehicle.
The present legal status of the crooks was unclear at the time of writing.
