One of the most interesting stories in today's local paper was Chase ends in Tinton Falls. I really wonder if I put a scene like that in one of my novels whether anyone would believe it. Despite a massive effort by police, the suspect got away.
I do have a chase scene in A Rush of Light with the hero chasing the villain. The hero, driving an SUV, ends up at the bottom of an incline due to a rollover and the villain gets away. However, the villain is eventually caught. In real life, the villain is sometimes never caught--which is rather disturbing and one of the reasons I enjoy writing fiction so much. In my stories, there is always a happy ending.
