Ruh-Roh! Woman In 'Scooby-Doo' Van Leads Cops On Chase

  • by: Jeremy Smith


A Northern California woman driving a minivan painted to look like the "Mystery Machine" van from "Scooby-Doo" escaped following a police pursuit on Sunday. Kinda looks like a day-glo paint job.

When police attempted to stop 51-year-old Sharon Kay Turman, she allegedly sped off, prompting officers to initiate the pursuit.

The chase, which reached speeds above 100 mph, went through the city of Anderson, according to the station. During the pursuit, Turman was alleged to have hit four cars, and ran at least one red light.

She eventually abandoned the lookalike "Mystery Machine" along a highway and was able to escape. As of this posting, her whereabouts remained unknown. No word if "Old Man" Smithers was involved in the shenanigans.
