In Thrilling Car Chase, Father and Daughter Go After Alleged BurglarsThe backstory on this banged up car doesn’t involve a nasty fender bender.  Nope, what happened to this family is a bit more high octane.

Plastic surgeon Kevin Smith and his 22-year-old daughter, Alana, saw strangers leaving their Houston home — with a pick up truck full of the Smith’s stuff — so they decided they would chase the suspects down in their car, recording the terrifying ride with a cell phone camera.

And it was a very wild ride.

They crashed once, then the alleged burglars threw the truck they were driving into reverse and smashed into the dad-daughter duo’s car, and then… wait for it…. they did it AGAIN.

Holy hutzpah!  But the Smiths did just did NOT get the hint. They kept chasing teh pickup, then it got serious.  The suspects turned their truck around and came barreling at them head-on….

The cops arrived just in time and captured two of three male suspects.  Dr. Smith says he would do it all over again because he’s fed up with robberies in his neighborhood.  “We’re not going to tolerate it anymore in our neighborhood.  We’re not going to tolerate it,” he said.

So this courageous crime-fighting duo got their stolen TVs and laptops from back the burglars.  Good going, you two!

But… take a look at your banged up Audi.  Was it worth it?
