Where to begin with this one??
Harvard police officers arrived at the credit union, 1200 S. Division St., about 9:10 a.m. and saw a Toyota Prius driven by Menk leaving a business that was closed at the time, Kazy-Garey said.
Kazy-Garey said police officers tried to stop the vehicle, but Menk failed to pull over and fled.
The vehicle then crashed into a tree just north of 2513 Route 23. Harvard Fire Protection District crews were dispatched to the scene about 9:15 a.m.
Menk was killed in the crash, the McHenry County Coroner’s Office confirmed.
A) the police in this small town have a strangely convenient reputation for 'dead perpetrators'.
B) Check out the comments to the news story! They've taken some of my best material for comments, such as: Who would use a Prius as a getaway car?, the observation that the tree-hugger was done in by a tree, and Goin' Green for the Green!
I guess I really don't have more to add. Just thought you'd enjoy this.
