-- Fox News alert we take you South Florida now and a car chase underway right now high speed chase.
On state road 826.
This is as as far as I can tell they're sort of in west central Miami.
Is one of the main north south highways it's a multi lane highway and -- rush hour it is packed bumper to bumper with people.
We don't know what is motivating the driver of this -- Mercedes SUV.
To go flying by traffic as you can see there at a very high rate of speed.
But whatever it is that he or she did they don't want to answer for two police and so there they're driving their on that very.
Narrow shoulder the -- up against the media and not really -- shoulder at all but -- driving on that shoulder.
Up against the median and and just flying to get away from police.
You know -- again helicopters on so you know the police are not far behind.
Thing that strikes me John you don't normally see.
Mercedes SUV and high speed chases and and you know rotated to put it.
Plainly is -- looks like a mummy vehicle if you will so we don't know whose driving this thank definitely an unusual sight seeing at this.
Kind of it vehicle involved in there it goes speeding down the it's going northbound.
Beyond the a 26 -- in Miami.
-- ready to -- six again not parallels I 95 over much of its -- in Miami it's I 95.
That more or less hugs the coast.
Is farther inland toward the Everglades it's the road that if you've been in Miami it's the road that.
Runs alongside the western boundary of Miami International Airport.
At last report they were passing bird road in Coral Gables but it's been a couple of minutes and as you can see this car is moving along at a pretty high rate of speed.
When the helicopter pulls out we have not seen any metro -- or Miami Dade police cars.
Anywhere near generally in this kind of pursuit they will lay back.
And not try to force the driver into doing something stupid.
They don't want you know to be blamed for four getting so close and and -- making the driver that.
-- -- causes.
Huge accident and and kills you know home hurts or kills someone else.
And so they'll stayed behind them and just try to monitor things and and keep an eye on the situation obviously.
Our friends from WS VNR are helping with their sky force chopper.
No doubt police -- -- -- not tuned into the signal as well they know where this guy is let's listen in to the WSVN chopper pilot now.
Able to avoid any accidents there well we did see some debris come off the car when we first got on scene there you as it was changing -- but so far.
It appeared to have put it appears that it's slowing down near the police officers -- he's run -- traffic can come into the hit the back of the a vehicle there.
There's no place to go we're gonna try to turn around now very very carefully while other.
Helicopters in the -- and now he's back if you -- -- damage to the front of that vehicle it's still trying to get around.
And -- he's -- very difficult things here maneuvering between several vehicles.

West of 27 avenue now we've got the Miami guard police officers there and he's obviously going the wrong way.
On what would be the exit ramp now he's got tractor trailer there is maneuvered around.
This is a very very dangerous situation here.
And though we advise all of our viewers that this is alive and that the things that as they unfold.
You're gonna see here do you keep your eyes are glued to this TV -- so again nauert turning the vehicle is turning.
Southbound we see so much debris again fall off for the front of the vehicle -- -- the tired look like it's -- elaborated there.
