Illustration for article titled Train hits police cruiser during chase, suspect gets away

It's the act-two follow-up to that Turkish guy who saved a town from a fireball. A police chase in Cedar Rapids, Iowa ended when a police cruiser was hit by an oncoming train.


The chase, which police say resembled a scene out of, say, Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry, spilled over from a street running parallel to train tracks to the tracks themselves. The cruiser was later hit by a coal-loaded train, which dragged it about 100 yards. The officer involved wasn't injured, mostly because he was smart enough to not be in the car while it was stuck on the train tracks.

Police said the male suspect got away, and remains on the loose, unlike Dirty Mary and Crazy Larry. (Thanks to gravit8 for the tip!
