If I had to make a list of “worst vehicles to use to escape the police,” the Grumman LLV mail delivery truck would be somewhere just below tractor and forklift. And yet one Florida man apparently went for it anyway, and the results were 100 percent predictable.
This rather depressing event happened near Daytona Beach, Florida. The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office writes in a press release that it received a call on Saturday from Volusia County saying a carjacking suspect had hopped onto Interstate 95 in a stolen mail truck. Per West Palm Beach-based news site WPTV, the suspect had threatened a mail carrier in the town of Holly Hill with mace before stealing her vehicle.
Officers from that sheriff’s office found the suspect on the highway, and exited their vehicles to deploy stop-sticks. Then the man behind the wheel of the Long Life Vehicle allegedly tried running into the officers.
