British police conducted a very awkward pursuit of a stolen vehicle in Hertfordshire Thursday, when the driver left the road and started traveling down railroad tracks.
A stolen vehicle was driven down railway tracks in front of stunned passengers to evade police in what a witness described as “like a scene from Grand Theft Auto”.
The black Land Rover Discovery was then abandoned on the track near Cheshunt railway station, Hertfordshire, having earlier sped away from a police stop.
Two officers were injured in the incident, which saw one of them thrown from the car. A hunt is under way for the driver.
The suspect was not captured, but he was offered a job as Thomas the Tank Engine’s engineer.
