I'm driving down Springvale Rd when I see a huge plume of thick white smoke cover the street and surrounding area, I had no idea what was causing it or where it was,
I see all the damage done by the car but can't see the car where it really should be, that's because the car is still moving,
The next thing I see is this random car stopped in the middle of the road and a fire truck have to slam on the anchors to avoid a second
One fire fighter manages to break the drivers window and make a grab for the keys,
One guy gets out and here I'm figuring he's going to bolt...
The police haven't made it yet, but they usually are last to arrive, and just as these guys look like they've got their stuff in order,
So a foot race of sorts begins, and at this stage the police probably didn't realise they were in for this so there's only 4 officers there
ENTER THE COMMUNITY!
A good chunk of the people in the street see what's going on, so we all instinctively spread out looking for this guy. We didn't speak to each other,
Then I spot this peering face over one of the fences, it takes me a few seconds before I recognise the person as the one we are looking for,

Nek minnut, I hear yelling from the side street, and I see the 2 officers make chase again
So I make a dash at what I consider to be my top speed along the main road, thinking he's probably
I thought I was going to have a moment but really I was just front row to watch it all go down!
The first officer grabs him just on the other side of the road, and does the nice job of tackling the
I check with another officer to make sure I don't need to continue scanning the fences for someone else, and they say all good they've got them both.
The poor people on the corner now have a busted up front yard and a few fences to replace. And really I haven't done anything to help and haven't seen anything more than what the fire fighters saw or I'd stay to offer a statement.
