The chase of the white Bronco
O.J. and Al Cowlings on the run through L.A.
Almost 22 years to the date, Al Cowlings pressed down on the gas pedal of a 1993 Ford Bronco while his friend O.J. Simpson, who had been told to surrender to police, sat in the backseat with a gun, and sped off, causing a car chase that led police and TV viewers nationwide through the streets of Los Angeles. This low-speed chase not only kicked off the world’s interest in the case, but also became a moment in pop culture that people think of when they hear the name O.J. Simpson.
Being a day shy of my fourth birthday at the time, I barely remember this, but that’s the power of pictures. While digging photos up for all the Simpson stories we have done, I came across a nice amount of photos that tell the story of this chase and I thought that it would selfish not to share.
