Wheels of Terror (also known as Terror in Copper Valley) is a 1990 American television movie directed by Christopher Cain and starring Joanna Cassidy and Marcie Leeds. The film originally debuted on the USA Network in 1990. The film revolves around the unseen driver of a black Dodge Charger, (consisting of mixed year's makes 1971, 1974) kidnapping, molesting, and sometimes murdering young girls around the fictional locale of Copper Valley, Arizona and a bus driver who chases the car, after it kidnaps her daughter played by Marcie Leeds.
Laura (Cassidy) is a bus driver with a daughter named Stephanie (Leeds). When Stephanie is kidnapped by the driver of the Dodge Charger right in front of Laura, she starts chasing the car with kids still on the bus, in an attempt to get Stephanie back.
During the chase, Laura is pulled over by a motorcycle cop, allowing the car to get away. While he is talking to Laura, the car shows up and rams the cop, killing him. The car then speeds away with Stephanie leaning out the window, crying for help. Laura chases after the car again, despite the kids pleading for her to slow down. Laura loses sight of the car, nearly driving off the edge of a cliff near a bridge in the process. The car appears behind the bus and rams it repeatedly, trying to send it over the edge, but Laura manages to start up the bus and back it away from the edge. The car then speeds off and Laura goes back after it.
Laura tracks the car down at a construction site and lets the kids off, asking them to call the police at a nearby place. She then goes back after the car. Laura eventually gets Stephanie back.
