Holy highway! This is absolutely TERRIFYING!
A 47-year-old Iowa mom was stuck driving over 100 mph for 35 minutes when her Kia Sorento lost all control and wouldn't stop accelerating.
Although there was no bomb threat in this real-life Speed scenario, we can only imagine how scary it is to be in a situation like this.
The video (above) shows just that by combining footage from the state police tailing the vehicle and the 911 call Lori Ubelstad made once she realized there was no stopping.
It's a miracle that nobody was hurt because she had to dodge lots of unsuspecting traffic before she received any assistance from the police, but we're oh so glad that everything turned out okay.
While there were no explosions or crashes involved, this is one high-speed car chase that is definitely worth watching!

Not so fast…!
Remember last month when the pesky paparazzo, Paul Raef — who trailed Justin Bieber down the 101 Freeway — officially got charged???
Raef’s four charges fell under California’s brand new “Paparazzi Law,” with him being the very first person ever charged…and he’s not too happy about it!
Now, the photog is planning on pleading NOT guilty in court, defending his actions by comparing them to that of a news reporter racing to the scene of a breaking story!
Um…we’re not quite sure this is the same thing, Paul!!
Raef and his lawyer are now saying that the new

Kip Arnold is an El Lay physical education teacher suspected of engaging in "lewd" sexual conduct with middle-school students.
When cops questioned him, Kip yelled "you'll never take me alive!" which led to a high-speed pursuit where they chased him all around El Lay!
Suspects are ALWAYS innocent until proven guilty but running from the CHP and attempting a suicidal swan dive off the interstate makes us fear the worst!!
Or maybe Kip's a big Thelma & Louise fan looking to recreate that scene where Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis (SPOILER ALERT) take a header into the Grand Canyon??
Ch-Ch-Check out the shocking video (above) for URself, and let us know what U think happened (below)!

Back in 2007, Tracie Rice had the ride of her life, and now she's getting retribution…
With BIG money!
Lindsay Lohan's insurance company dropped $500,000 clams after settling out of court with Rice. The insurance felt they would have a losing battle if the case went in front of a jury, so they conceded the dough.

To recap - the Doughtery Gang are a group of criminal siblings from Florida, consisting of 29-year-old Lee Grace Dougherty, 21-year-old Ryan Edward Dougherty, and 26-year-old half brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley.
Back in August, they went on a violent crime spree, and were finally caught after a 100 mph car chase in Colorado!
Now, we've learned that gangmember/sibling Dylan tried (and failed) to break out of jail, as described in a newly released prison document.
According to the doc, deputies found "a homemade knife and letter to the FBI in his cell." The letter read as follows:

These two will be going away for a looooooong time.
Yesterday, 24-year-old Logan McFarland and 25-year-old Angela Atwood were arrested after a week-long Bonnie-and-Clyde-like crime spree.
Logan and Angela were finally spotted "walking along a country road by a rancher in his plane," and when police caught up to them, they simply said "we give up."
According to police, the couple's several crimes include stealing a car in Utah, killing an elderly couple in their home, and shooting a woman in Nevada while stealing her car.
Before their arrest, Logan and Angela were able to briefly evade police during a "high-speed car chase"…but they were caught soon after that.
Enjoy jail, U two!

Such a cray cray story!
To give you some background, the Doughtery Gang are a group of criminal siblings from Florida, consisting of 29-year-old Lee Grace Dougherty, 21-year-old Ryan Edward Dougherty, and 26-year-old half brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley.
Even before their crime spree, they had exisiting criminal records for marijuana possession, driving with a suspended license, hit and run, AND domestic violence. Yikes!
Their crime spree began when
