Driver eludes police after cross-county chase

DANIA BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - A driver who led police on a cross-county chase remains at large after bailing out in Dania Beach.

Police said the chase started near Key Biscayne at around 2 p.m. Wednesday after the driver of the white Mercedes drove so quickly past a motorcycle officer it nearly tipped his bike over.

7SkyForce HD hovered over the scene along the northbound lanes of Interstate 95 where the white Mercedes could be seen driving at a high rate of speed.

A Miami-Dade Police helicopter followed the vehicle from above.

The driver was seen running the red light before getting back on I-95 and then driving westbound on Griffin Road in the wrong lane of traffic.

The driver then pulled into a parking garage at a Tri-Rail train station located at 500 Gulf Stream Way in Dania Beach.

Authorities set up a perimeter in the area.

“And the dogs came out the car and ran after them, too,” said a witness.

No one was hurt.

When police arrived at the train station, they found the car, but the driver, which they couldn’t get a description of, was nowhere to be found.

The perimeter has since been taken down, and the white Mercedes was towed away.
