June 17, 1994: The nation was glued to television sets as everybody witnessed perhaps the most famous car chase to have ever taken place.

O.J. Simpson, Heisman Trophy winner and Hall of Fame running back for the Buffalo Bills, was a suspect in the deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.

Simpson was ordered to turn himself in to the police, but instead triggered a car chase seen around the world, taking place on the 405 freeway.

The notorious chase concluded at Simpson's mansion, where he finally turned himself in.

It was a wild day in sports as the New York Rangers had their Stanley Cup parade after ending a 54-year championship drought, the World Cup opened in the U.S. for the first time and the Knicks hosted Game 5 of the NBA Finals against Houston.

At times, NBC, which was televising the Knicks-Rockets game, went to split-screen coverage of basketball and the Simpson chase.
