Motorbike went very fast - level 3

A motorcyclist in California reaches top speeds during an all-out pursuit along several freeways, weaving through traffic inches from vehicles and waving his hands at police. He was too fast for the cars but two highway patrol officers on motorbikes managed to catch up. The chase on Wednesday came to an end when the biker rode off the main interstate onto a dirt road.

"Let's see what's up ahead of him here. And that's what's up ahead. See there's the bridge that’s under construction. Let's see if he can even get onto it. I mean on a motor… well, he, oh, look at this, he just jumps off the bike for no good reason here. He's laying on the ground. We're waiting for that officer who was right behind him. He looks so despondent there by our look here. And here comes one of the officers… here with guns drawn two officers from CHP. So, this guy really kind of.. Boy... Now after some crazy moments here, and again not really clear what this guy's intention were several times there."

Interesting words: all-out (with maximum power), pursuit (chase), weave (turn from side to side), pursuit (chase), interstate (highway), despondent (depressed), drawn (taken out), CHP (California Highway Patrol).
