Indiana's own one-legged, remedial stunt-driving 'Duke' boy is still on the loose after hopping away from the crash site of his failed "Dukes of Hazzard" style bridge jump last weekend.
IMPD said officers saw the man driving recklessly Sunday night and after trying to pull him over, the suspect nearly struck their patrol car. Officers continued to pursue the suspect, and as he approached a closed road where part of a bridge was out, but he attempted cross the bridge anyway in "Bo and Luke Duke" fashion.
“The driver refused the signs and warnings about the bridge and attempted to drive across... ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ style, but this is real life and not Hollywood,”officers wrote Monday in a Facebook post.
Police said the stunt clearly failed, with the car skidding and crashing into the exposed beams of the bridge. The man immediately got out of the car and fled, leaving behind a prosthetic leg with a Crocs shoe.
