A man has recently escaped from prison and is making his way home on foot.
He is walking along a straight rural country lane in bright daylight.
He has walked about two miles from the prison, when he sees a police car coming toward him.
Despite knowing that all squads would be out looking for him, he ran towards the car for a short while, and only when he was about ten feet away, did he turn and run into the woods to hide.
Why did he run towards the police car?
