Driver smashes police car after 109-mph chase
It looks like Hutchins tried to pull a fast one on officers, heading for an exit and then changing lanes at the last minute. But he seemed to have miscalculated the point of no return, and had a head-on impact with a concrete divider. The resulting impact sent the car airborne - this is where it gets really scary - and right into the windshield of a pursuing police cruiser.
The deputy behind the wheel suffered a broken foot, as well as back and neck pain and an airbag burn, according to the local Fox affiliate. As for the driver, after the crash he remained "belligerent and verbally abusive" with officers and first responders. While being treated, he also scratched a nurse at a local hospital, drawing blood. Hutchins faces charges of operating while intoxicated, reckless endangering of safety, fleeing from an officer, battery to an emergency medical care provider and resisting and obstructing. He faces 32 years in prison if convicted. Scroll down for the dashcam video.
