Trying to stop a Range Rover driving at a speed of 150 km/h (93 mph) is not always a good move. Three French police officers have learned it in the most tragic way, as two of them - age 32 and 40 - were killed and the third one, aged 54, was seriously injured.

First details suggest that the police officers were chasing the Range Rover for multiple infractions of the road. The police car - a Ford Mondeo - tried to block the SUV, which apparently had no intention to stop and the impact was of a "rare violence."

The Range Rover driver - age 22 - has a pretty hefty criminal record, as he was involved multiple small thefts and drug trafficking, and was arrested five times for driving offenses. Initial reports suggest that during this incident he was under influence and medical reports revealed 1.4 grams of alcohol per liter of blood, while the limit is 0.5 grams / liter of blood. He was also without driving license.

I wonder if there are no alternative choice than blocking the SUV. It is too dangerous attempt since the driver obviously did not have intention to stop the car. Maybe hitting firing the tires with their guns could be helpful. Poor French police officers who were victims while on duty.

So sad! Also incredible... How was this possible? That was a SUV, but even Mondeo is a good car

Pity that we can’t see many pitures of these two cars. I wonder which one is more damaged.
