MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FL – If you can’t hail a cab down, just steal it! OK not really, but that’s what one idiot did in Miami-Dade County, Florida.

The suspect led police on a chase through two counties. The video shows the driver cutting across grassy medians and squeezing through traffic.

Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case near Aventura, Florida. Police say they were chasing the driver of an SUV that was headed in the wrong direction down Interstate 95. Just moments after police gave up their pursuit, the SUV crashed into a mini-van, killing four people inside.

As it seems to always turn out, the bad guy got lucky and only suffered broken legs. Perhaps he’ll get what he deserves when he gets charged.
