Movie-style car chase ends on Berlin metro plat­form

Muscat Daily - - WORLD -

Berlin, Ger­many - A sleepy Berlin sub­urb ex­pe­ri­enced an ac­tion movie-style car chase as a driver flee­ing po­lice leapt from his ve­hi­cle be­fore it plunged into an un­der­ground metro sta­tion.

No one was hurt as the black Ford Fi­esta raced through the west­ern Span­dau district re­cently, a po­lice re­port said, although star­tled pedes­tri­ans had to quickly leap out of its path as the car ca­reened onto pave­ments and grass verges.

The 25 year old at the wheel jumped out of the car be­fore it raced down the steps of the sta­tion, but of­fi­cers ar­rested him close to the scene.

Two pas­sen­gers of the ve­hi­cle, who were still on board dur­ing its dive, es­caped the pur­su­ing po­lice.

Po­lice of­fi­cers had at­tempted to pull the car over for a traf­fic stop, but in­stead of obey­ing the driver sped away. He was found not to have a driver's li­cence, while the car's li­cence plates were listed as wanted on po­lice data­base.
