Freeway pile up caused by police chase

This makes me sick.

This crazy crash looks intense from the police dashboard cam. Unsafe police chase? maybe?

The chased driver hits the van, which smashes into the truck next to it. The van really does look crushed.

I get so angry when I see these types of police chases. There is zero reason to get motorists killed over having to chase some dumb fool who just bought some weed or whatever. It’s even worse when they do it over a DUI (DWI)… the fool is already drunk, so lets chase him and get him going even faster.

What is so hard about following in a helicopter or getting the plate and arresting them later? Maybe cops gotta have fun too and the chase gives them a rush? too bad 100’s of people die every year due to their need for excitement.
my 2 cents.
