Spring Clean: And make your drive more enjoyable
The speeding 2018 Audi drove off I-45 at such a quick pace that Sergeant Carl Laza did not even see it. To be honest, it’s hard for us to see it on the dash cam footage as well. Laza thought it was a tornado.
According to police, the Audi driver is in the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Wilmer Police did not mention whether they would charge the driver or not.
Sergeant Laza was out completing the rest of his night patrol when this incident occurred. We’re sure he slept well that night. We would have been up half the night reliving it in our heads.
