Sometimes the jokes just write themselves, folks. Oregon’s Newberg-Dundee police had a stolen car chase come to an end when the driver crashed into another car, which was also stolen!
The bizarre encounter took place on the morning of Sunday, July 5, and began when Randy Cooper, 27, of Portland was spotted by police driving a stolen Toyota Land Cruiser.
After giving chase through downtown Newberg, Cooper was finally apprehended when he crashed the Land Cruiser into a Buick Regal being driven by 25-year-old Kristin Nicole Begue of Newberg.
