Cruisers Finally Ram Pick-Up Truck -- Air Traffic Briefly
Imagine this conversation on your local ground frequency:
"America West 123
Sky Harbor Ground."
"America West 123, hold short for the stolen pickup ahead, then
taxi to parking."
"America West 123, err... roger."
Phoenix Police say a stolen pick-up truck that had led officers
on an hour-long chase during rush hour traffic Thursday morning
wound up on the runway at Sky Harbor airport, ending only when two
police cruisers rammed the errant vehicle.
Flights into and out of Sky Harbor were delayed briefly as
officers arrested the suspect and carted him off to booking.
As television news helicopters hovered nearby, the drama
unfolded on the runway after the stolen vehicle crashed through two
fences and knocked a motorcycle cop off his bike, according to
The driver, not yet publicly identified by police, led officers
on a 40-mile chase before he burst onto the tarmac. He was later
taken to the hospital with unspecified injuries.
