>> Aren't there two similar trucks?
No, only one vehicle was being persued.
The incident began at a bank in Richarsdon, where gunmen robbed the bank with high-powered rifles. They stole a vehicle and took-off North. They had just crossed into Plano during this vehicle, that highway interchange is the border between Plano and Richardson. The gunmen came to a stop a few blocks north east and got in another gun fight with police, stole another vehicle, and scattered.
I think one of the suspects was arrested, but most of the group got away.
>> this incident occurred in Dallas at the intersection of Central Expressway and Plano Parkway.
Yes, you can also see the Plano Parkway exit sign wizz past. That building to the right is also the SBC building just north of the Nortel buildings.
>> I was following the streets myself and can remember going down there a million times.
So can I. I the next two exits down, at Parker!
>> I don't get it.What is that noise when he crosses the rail?
Automatic weapons fire. This incident is why Dallas officers are now allowed to carry police assault rifles if they so choose.

For a second there, I thought I knew that guy. I played rugby with a fellow who did the same thing, though robbed an Eckerds, then used a shot gun and blew out the cops windshield. Same area of town too..hmmm....

The red S-10 Blazer he is following through much of the tape is not part of the chase. He is on his way to the event when someone calls out on the radio that the car in question is 'backing up the off ramp'. The officer darts his car to the left down the ramp when the shots ring out.
