2 girls died after NC trooper tries to spin-out fleeing van; investigation deepens

The PIT maneuver is an intentional collision by the trooper with the fleeing vehicle. It’s designed to lift the rear wheels off the pavement and make the vehicle spin out.

Experts say the move can be very effective, but note that minivans are top-heavy and have small tires, making them more likely to flip.
