Ruh-roh! The Mystery Machine Was In A Car Chase!

“Ruh-roh, Raggy!” Today, a woman driving a van painted like the Mystery Machine from “Scooby-Doo, Where are You?” led police on a high speed car chase in California. It started around noon when the woman, Sharon Kay Turman, was wanted on a probation violation. They went to do a routine traffic stop, and Turman just took off through the neighborhood and onto a highway. They got up to over 100 mph, Turman ran four red lights and hit two cars. Turman abandoned the vehicle on the road and has not been seen since.

She was going so fast that the police had to abandon the pursuit. The news helicopter continued to monitor the van as she sped away. The van is now in the impound. The minivan is a 1994 Chrysler van that was painted to look like the van from the show “Scooby-Doo, Where are You?”. We can only hope that Turman is revealed to be the real villain. Or, it might be the camp director in a mask, who knows. All we know is we needed a chase scene down a long hallway with many rooms with groovy music and random characters popping up.

Turman is wanted by the Redding Police Department and Shasta County probation. Also, she is possibly in possession of Scooby snacks and needs to give them back to Shaggy.

“Scooby Doo, Where are You?” was a popular TV cartoon series in the late 60s and early 70s. There was a spin off “Scooby Doo and Scrappy Doo” in the late 70s. It has had several spin off series and some movies (both live action and cartoon). The cartoon shows were definitely better than the live action movies with Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr., and Matthew Lillard. Shaggy and Scooby were the only characters in a versions of the show and movies.
