Unfortunately living in California we see a lot of car chases on the road – not only being broadcast on local news stations, but sometimes they also make the commute home more stressful. Though no one was hurt in this high speed chase, sometimes there are people who do sustain injuries – from the chase itself, but also from other drivers on the road who are not paying attention to the road and traffic ahead of them, but rather are paying attention to the commotion going on around them.
