Vulnerability In Road Chases
3 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Crash Course,Jon and Ponch deal with a car thief that moves into the robbery business.

A girl witnesses someone steal a car behind the Greyhound terminal. He then goes to a drive thru window and robs them. In his escape, another car crashes into him but he takes off again while Ponch and Jon chase him and the theme begins.

When the car turns into an alley, he backs up and Jon swerves to avoid him and has a minor spill.

Meanwhile, Sonny Matson steals a hot rod and is chased by the owner but unsuccessful. Then he pulls off another robbery, Turner chases them and is soon joined by Ponch and Jon. When Turner swerves to avoid a school bus, he flips his cruiser.

Matson shows off his escape method of rolling the car.Then,he steals another car and has it equipped with jets.

While attempting to finally fix the problem, Matson shows up at the bank with his assistant Dyle. While Ponch distracts Dyle, Jon puts the cuffs on him. Bonnie chases Matson in his car while Ponch and Jon take a shortcut. When Ponch and Jon cut him off, he hits the jets and loses control and crashes. Ponch and Jon make the arrest.

This features an endless chase of CHP officers to pursue getaway driver Sonny Matson while they also get involved in accidents.It also shows their vulnerability of the characters when it comes to road chases that makes our CHP officers human.
