Suspect busted after Mercedes smashes up block in NYC cop chase

The driver of a lime-green luxury car crashed his vehicle into a slew of others and drove the flashy ride up onto a Bronx sidewalk to avoid cops in a wild caught-on-video chase, leaving 11 people injured, police say.

Francisco Padilla, 29, launched his dangerous escapade in his Mercedes Benz GLC Coup around 5 p.m. Wednesday after cops tried to stop him in Fordham Manor because of the dark tint on his ride, according to police.

Padilla allegedly refused to pull over and fled down a packed East Fordham Road as officers gave chase on foot with their guns drawn.

A video posted to Instagram shows the garish green machine weaving back and forth, smashing into vehicles as an onlooker screams, “Yo! They wildin’ out here!”

Padilla eventually found a hole in traffic and jumped the curb in front of an Old Navy and sped off.
