If you were on South Beach this past Monday afternoon, you might have noticed a yellow Corvette driving erratically down Fifth Street, darting onto a sidewalk near Flamingo Park, and then crashing into a fire hydrant near Fourth Street and Lenox Avenue — all while being chased by Miami Beach Police.
Video of the incident that’s since gone viral online shows the Corvette speeding down a sidewalk outside Flamingo Park near Michigan Avenue. As the vehicle speeds away, a Miami Beach Police car quickly makes a U-turn and chases the Corvette.
It turns out police had already been on the hunt for the vehicle, which was stolen, at the time the video was shot. Around 3 p.m. Monday, MBPD issued a citywide alert to its officers to be on the lookout for the Corvette after a license-plate reader alerted cops that the stolen ride was driving near Sixth Street and Washington Avenue.
