Synopsis: Since the hit-and-run murder of his wife five years ago, Rennie Cray has crisscrossed America in his souped-up, stripped-down '68 Plymouth Barracuda, pursuing her killer. The man he seeks in a high-speed, high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse is James Fargo, a merciless, wheelchair-bound pyschopath. Through a series of mechanical innovations, Fargo has turned his rampaging '72 Cadillac Eldorado into a monstrous extension of his own twisted body and mind. Now, their deadly battle of wits and wills is about to move into overdrive. And caught in their headlights is a tormented beauty who unwittingly holds the key to their ultimate showdown.

Sure I can't give you a ride home?

Thanks, Boone.

Alex is picking me up.

But it's nice of you to ask.

Well, it's late, it's cold.

You think it's a good idea.

to wait here alone?

I could wait with you.

I'll be fine.

Good night, Molly.

Good night, Boone.

Hey, Alex. Thanks.

No problem.

Alex? Take it slow tonight?


I don't know. It's late.

I'm not as alert as I'd like to be.

You're a passenger.

How alert do you have to be?

What's he doing?


He's getting over.


Are you all right?



Molly, are you all right?


Stay here. I'll go get help.

Stop! I need help!

No! Oh, please!


Get back here!

Possible hit and run. Multiple...

Officer on scene not involved.

Requesting supervisor.

Hold it! Hold it right there.

Tunnel's closed.

This is an emergency lane.

Will Macklin. Traffic investigator.

T.I. coming through!

Work fast, guys.

Keep going. Come on, good job.

You're good. Go ahead.



What happened?

We got a mess.

You remember how it was.

Great to be

young and stupid on a

Saturday night.

We got three vehicles,

four bodies.

Nothing ticking but their watches.

White female, early 20's.

Talk about a hard-on.

You got a filthy mind, Jimmy.

You ought to transfer to Vice.

Horse trailer must've gone in first.

That's why the animal's here.

First on the scene was

that guy there with the dogs.

But he didn't call it in.

Who did?

Wouldn't leave his name.

Came in on channel nine.

Nine? A CB?

People still use them?

This look like a souvenir shop?

Hey! Hey, we got a survivor here!

Hey! Up here!

Let's go!

Come in.


Will Macklin,

state traffic investigator.

She's already said

everything she has to say.

Not to me.

It's okay.

I'll be right outside.

Please, sit.

You must feel that we

don't do our job very well.

For something like this

to happen to you. Twice.

This isn't the same.

No, of course not.

The other was worse, I'd guess.

Losing your family like that.

I've seen it take down grown men.

You must've been a tough

little girl.

I was just wondering...


If it wouldn't skew what you saw.

Shade your thinking a little.

It shades my life.

So it's conceivable

you got things wrong?

He saw her. He toyed with her.

He killed her,

and then he came after me.

Don't suppose you know anything

about skid marks?


Rubber on asphalt is like

ink on paper.

Tires may not know how to spell...

but the marks they leave

are a language just the same.

And what do they say?

There were a lot of people in that

tunnel trying to avoid one another.

One guy doing just the opposite.

It almost sounds like

you believe me.

What are you going to do about it?


I'm not a homicide detective.

I don't even carry a gun.

Just a measuring tape and a pencil.

I've never made an arrest

in my life. Never shot anyone.

You said the vehicle was big,

American maybe...

old, possibly green.

What else can you tell me about it?


Okay. Let me start

by confessing...

that I've never actually

been in an accident.

But I know what you're thinking,


You're saying to yourself,

"Why me?"

Yes, well, it didn't just

happen to you.

In America, 300 of us are


injured in a motor vehicle

accident... every hour.

That's over 8,000 of us a day.

That's over three million a year.

The person next to you,

take their hand.

Take it. Go on, take it.

That's it.

I want you to do something for me.

I want you to say...

I am not alone.

Say it with me.

I am not alone.

Good. Again.

I am not alone.

What happened to me
