Cops don't know how to drive. Was it worth it hurting this woman?

Why do these "journalist" always seem to be preoccupied with the make/model of cars involved?

Like the Rinni Chassen killing they kept emphasizing she was driving a Benz. BFD! In this area 99% of these expensive cars are leased.

That aside who cares if it was a Lexus or a Hyundai? Why not just say it was a sedan?

DO these journalist go to school for writing or are just pushed in front of a computer.

The crash was at 10:06 p.m. Sunday on the Golden State Freeway north of Lyons Ave., Officer D. Avis said.

Officer Luis Oliva was driving his patrol car in the third lane from the left at about 90 miles per hour, Avis said. Rishi Puri, 32, of Rancho Cucamonga, was driving a GMC sport utility at 68 miles per hour in the second lane from the left, with his wife and one boy and one girl twins in the car.

Oliva made a lane change and collided into the rear of the Puri car "for reasons still under investigation," Avis said. Both cars lost control and crashed into he guard rail on the west roadway edge of the freeway.

Trina Puri, 31, was the passenger in the GMC and Avis said she was not wearing safety equipment. She was treated on the scene and transported to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital with major injuries. Avis said no one else was hurt. The crash remains under investigation.

The crash was three minutes after a pursuit began nearby on the Golden State Freeway at Magic Mountain Parkway.

A Lexus made an illegal U-turn and failed to pull over, CHP Officer Anthony Martin said. He could not say for certain that it was the pursuit to which Oliva was headed.

Lets see 90 miles per hour, IN THE SLOW LANE, at night, then a lane change(to the fast lane?)then wham!
I hope this woman was sited for not wearing "SAFETY EQUIPMENT".
SAFETY EQUIPMENT? you mean like seat belts or maybe a crash helmet?
Hopefully this "not using safety equipment" WILL be used AGAINST her and her family in the up coming lawsuit to keep the settlement down.
California cannot maintain six figure pension plans to it's state employees if it has to pay money
to it's citizens for negligence by other state employees.

Officers risk their lives daily for people like you, who have little to no respect for the job. Who was going to gfo after the bad guy, you? Anyone can whine and complain from their computer, how about getting out there and putting your own arse on the line to catch a bad guy! Coward.

You sound like the bigger whiner.

Sure cops risk their lives everyday BUT they get paid for it and no one is forcing them to do that kind of work. So, you keep your pie hole shut and just do your job. Stop reminding us how deserving you are because you are not.

Fiorina-
Yes, we get paid to do our jobs, but it is a job that not everyone can do or will do for that matter. It is a job to us 24/7, 365, weekends and holidays, away from our families, and we wear a target on our chest everyday we put on our uniforms, because we swore an oath to "if necessary, lay down our lives", it is not a 9-5 that we just turn off, it is not in our nature, that is after all why we chose this career. No, not every move we make is perfect, after all we are human. But we do our best to keep YOU and everyone else safe, we are usually the first to be criticized and also the first ones called when someone needs help. So before you throw out your criticism on those officers who make mistakes, first think of the sacrifices that we all make so that you make it home safely at night, to be with your family while we are out on the streets missing ours.

Let me ask you one question to prove mym point: How many times doe cops make lane changes each day without using a turn indicator? The CVC requires that the turn be signalled before it is made.
