Two men (Nicky and Freddie) and a woman (Casey) pull a series of armed robberies by disguising themselves as police officers and using a fake "detour" sign to lure their victims into secluded areas. They decide to flee the state after killing an uncooperative victim, but they cannot resist pulling an unplanned robbery when a tempting target is spotted at a roadside diner. Casey is forced to commandeer the victim's car and use him as a hostage after the original robbery plan is stymied by a Highway Patrol roadblock. When the victim signals his peril by dropping his wallet onto the road, Dan Mathews and Sergeant Johnson follow the car and ultimately find themselves in an armed conflict with the trio. Written by

Matthews tells Williams to get him the make of the car battery from the murder victim's car. This information is later used to determine the time of death based upon how long the horn would blow. It would be useless in a murder investigation since even the same make of battery will discharge at different rates depending upon several factors such as age, the charging system of the car, and the draw of the particular horns. This work was pointless at any rate as the coroner would quickly determine the time of death via the temperature of the body. See more »
