Some guy in Dallas allegedly stole a tractor trailor full of lumber and led police on a long chase. As a former lumber-truck driver, I can relate to some of his moves. I dreamt about them often while stuck in New York traffic. Don't try this at home, folks.

Driving through stopped traffic in a car-crushing tank is one of my favorites. Actually doing such things is another matter, though. Such situations never end well.
