Police Officer from the California Highway Patrol Arresting the Motorcycle Rider.

 

As a group of bikers were getting ready to participate in the Fallen Brother Ride, a speed bike crosses the intersection with a police officer in pursuit. What happened next- you decide, but it looks like the police car veered right slightly, just enough to bump into the motorcycle rider and cause him to crash.

***********

The motorcycle rider is twenty-six year-old Raul Garcia Martinez.  He suffered scuffs and bruises to his lower leg, left shoulder and lower back, according to a statement from the California Highway Patrol.

The group of motorcycle riders raced over to the scene of the accident, and start revving up their motorcycles when the officer was trying to call for backup.

CHP has a different version that began with a chase on the 210 Freeway, traveling eastbound. Garcia was passing cars on the shoulder. When the Officer turned on his lights, Garcia took off.

Per CHP- “for unknown reasons, the left side of the Yamaha made contact with the right side of the patrol vehicle.” 

Garcia was arrested on felony evading.
