While a dump truck may not be the vehicle of choice for a high speed getaway, it does provide a fugitive with ramming capabilities that sports cars lack. It also provides great video.
A little background first. The dump truck was reportedly stolen by a 17-year-old driver and taken on a 52-mile joyride. He was eventually stopped, along with two other accomplices, but not before barreling into multiple vehicles and throwing objects such as a fire extinguisher and bricks out the window at police.
Here's the video from Fox 8 in Cleveland:
