Deputy traveling 119 MPH Before

Deputy traveling 119 MPH Before ‘Spectacular’ Crash
Can you even tell that this is an unmarked Chevy Tahoe? That's because a Columbia, SC Sheriff's Deputy rolled it at 119 MPH while driving through a 45 MPH zone. Allegedly chasing a gun-wielding drug dealer, the officer in question has just been suspended for five days without pay.
The incident occurred way back in the halcyon days of March while the officer was responding to a reports of shots fired at a fellow officer. But, documents released later show the Deputy in question, Benjamin Dale Weatherford, wasn't actually dispatched to the incident and the officer who was, riding as a passenger, wasn't dispatched until 25 minutes later, calling into question Weatherford's haste.

The crash occurred just as the Tahoe was about to enter a 35 MPH zone. Another car, unable to see the speeding truck, pulled out in front, necessitating evasive manuevers that caused the Tahoe to strike a curb and roll. All three Sherriff's Deputies in the vehicle suffered only minor injuries.

According to a South Carolina Highway Patrol MAIT Team, the Tahoe was traveling at 119 MPH "less than a second before the impact." Impressive.


That Tahoe is rock solid. :riski:

Yup, I had no clue what that was until I read the article. I thought it was a Durango.

door handles dont look right for a tahoe at all...



Durango though... door handle looks closer, but the fender flares (any sign of them) are absent from the crashed truck...

Nope, pretty sure its a tahoe... funky door handle mismatch or not. Look at the config of the A pillar and door lines. Its not a durango. The door opening protrudes over the A pillar in the durango...

I agree, just sit back and admire the insane carnage and the fact they all only suffered minor injuries.
