The dashcam footage from a vehicle shows that the impact caused severe damage to the police car, but the Wrangler driver didn't stop. She rammed it again and pushed off the road.

This was enough for the 28-year old prisoner Kane Quinn to escape the police car and flee the spot in the Jeep Wrangler. Clearly, the Jeep Wrangler's occupants were Kane's accomplices.

According to eyewitnesses, the Jeep Wrangler was running at around much faster than the 80 kmph speed limit. The SUV was seen aggressively swarving and clipping the back of the police Camry. This resulted in the police car span out onto the median strip.

Police later found the Jeep SUV torched and abandoned in a nearby suburb, as reports suggest. The escaped prisoner and his accomplices too were found in a house in Canberra later. Police arrested them all. While Kane was charged with escaping custody, his accomplice was charged with dangerous driving, car theft, property damage and assaulting frontline staff.

During the whole incident, no other motorists or cars or police officers were injured, reveals the report.

Fortunately, no other motorists, nor the police officers inside the Camry, were injured in the incident. According to the report, this was the first time such an incident happened in Canberra.
