I wasn't sure if I should put this here on in spook central. It's pretty much a video of a police chase but at the end, it looks like the car goes through an intact chain link fence.

I'm betting someone has a serious paint-job ahead of them. Chain link fences are fairly flexible. That combined with a low car and those speeds, I'm betting they went under it. They are only tacked onto the poles with a very flexible metal strap or a piece of u-shaped metal. It looked like the fence was shaking when the cruiser turned to it. My money is on it going under.

I've seen cattle do it, so why not a car?

Or he went through a section that isn't shown on the video. It gives a pretty narrow field of view.

Could be either of the two but I'm leaning towards he just went under the fence.

Of course it couldn't just be "cool video"- it just has to be "ghost car" [Roll Eyes]

(And that eye roll isn't intended for the OP as I've seen the ghost car reference all over the place.)

I think we'd all rather believe it's some kind of unidentifiable phantom from the netherworld than some po-dunk white trash in a stolen car.
