'Scooby-Doo' van involved in high-speed police chase
In a further example of life imitating cartoons, a van painted to look like the vehicle from the Scooby-Doo series was recently involved in a high-speed police chase1 in California that reached speeds of 100 miles per hour.
This makes perfect sense. If you re intending to be involved in criminal activity, a garishly-painted, attention-grabbing van that s instantly recognizable to everyone who owned a television in the last 50 years is a great choice.
To be fair, since the Mystery Machine was the vehicle of crime-solvers Shaggy, Scoob, and company, perhaps the perpetrator was attempting to fool the police into thinking they were on the right side of the law. The driver was allegedly 51-year-old Sharon Kay Turman, who is wanted for alleged probation violations.
There s no word whether she is also the owner of a haunted amusement park or rundown mansion filled with secrets.
What we do know is that police have not yet caught up with the incredibly easy-to-find vehicle.
In other words, she got away with it, too.
