Barcelona's Wheelchair Speed Demon


Barcelona police have been befuddled by a new criminal on the streets of town - a man racing about the city streets on a wheelchair.

This isn't just any wheelchair, though. No, this is a motor-powered wheelchair that easily outstrips motorcycles, scooters and even cars, with the added bonus of looking a lot more comfortable to sit on than a scooter.

The rogue racer was captured on a video posted to YouTube powering down busy Carrer de Muntaner and weaving in and out of traffic. Commenters suggested Spanish Formula 1 driver Fernando Alonso might look at swapping out his wheels for a wheelchair.

So far, the man remains at large. As the spokesperson for the local police force helpfully pointed out, wheelchairs don't come with number plates, making them tricky to hunt down.
