A man in Canada led police on an incredible motorcycle chase, one that was all caught on camera.
According to CBC News, the video was accidentally leaked and then uploaded to YouTube by Live Leak. It reportedly shows cuts between helicopter footage, in-store security cameras, and police dashboard cameras. The video was compiled by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
The man in the video makes heart-stopping moves, putting numerous pedestrians and shoppers in danger as he goes through overpasses and the inside of a Vancouver-area shopping mall.
KTLA reports that the chase took place in Surrey, British Columbia, on February 20. The video was originally intended for investigators to take an in-depth look at the incident, but in the meantime it’s also going viral.
In the end, the man on the motorcycle gets away. He’s believed to be a white male in his 40s. A closer look at the motorcycle also reveals that he has stickers saying “Support your local Hell’s Angels Haney” and “In Memory of Johnny Antinozzi.”
According to the Huffington Post, the man may have gotten away in the chase, but he lost the motorcycle. Police found it abandoned in North Surrey.
The initial cause of the chase seems to still be unclear.
In any case, the Canadian motorcycle chase was reckless and several people nearly suffered major injuries, but the fugitive still seemed far more in control than in a recent chase in Los Angeles that ended in multiple accidents.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, another man attempted to make a getaway in rush-hour traffic only to quickly get into an accident, which forced him to carjack an innocent woman to continue the chase.
As for the motorcycle chase in Canada, the authorities are now not only looking into the chase, but also who leaked the incredible footage.
