That is the video from the YouTube channel for ABC 7 Chicago, but they also have an article about this carjacking in Chicago, and in the article they say...

"Deshawn Singleton is accused of taking a vehicle at gunpoint from a 40-year-old woman about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday in the 3500-block of South State Street...The SUV was left hanging on the edge of the break wall near 51st Street. He then battered and robbed a 26-year-old man who tried to help him, Chicago police said. The man was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center in fair condition."

I lived in Chicago for years before moving down to Quincy, Illinois, and you would occasionally see cars make a wrong turn and end up on the lake shore trail but that was usually people from the Suburbs just confused and making an honest mistake. But seeing a stolen car crash like this makes me believe that this guy was trying to get this car to sink in the lake to hide the evidence or something like that. Also, I will just say ABC 7 is a great channel to follow to stay up to date on all things happening in the Chicagoland area they are my personal favorite Chicagoland station.
