Shit! Cop Black-and-White pulling into the far end of the
alley. Heartbeat goes triple time. Scrambling into the
Door not even closed and SPAZ has it in reverse, burning
rubber as he launches back down the alley.
SCRUNCH! The car grinds along one wall as SPAZ steers
wildly backward. Sparks right next to us. Then--
KBOOM! As we slam into a dumpster and push it right out
into the street.
The cop has his lights and siren on, and is roaring at us
as SPAZ cranks the wheel and punches it down the street.
He curses in English and Spanish as he weaves between
cars. We pull off the stocking to see better.
The cop car surges onto the street behind us.
Looking ahead. A red light. Cars stopped, blocking the
way. Cutting to the right, onto the sidewalk, around the
cars, into the intersection.
A near miss with cross traffic, then accelerating.
Another red light ahead.
Truck entering the intersection. Everyone yelling. SPAZ

launching up and over, and--
KRUNCH! Crushing metal and an explosion of broken glass.

Whip pan to see the cops pulling up.
Then whipping back to the wreck. The engine is burning.
Flames spreading rapidly. SPAZ inside, pinned, upside
down, blood pumping across his face.
Our hands pulling Lane out. He comes up running.
We run after him, sprinting toward the welcoming darkness
of an alley.
Panting breath and heartbeats and sirens and somebody
Gunshots. Looking back. Cops next to their car, firing.
Ahead, Lane running into shadow.
