A California Highway Patrol motorcycle officer, in pursuit of four suspects for vehicle code violations in Redlands the other day died when he crashed into a tractor-trailer and his motorcycle burst into flames. The vehicle was traveling at about 100 mph and refused to stop for Officer. The vehicle crashed several blocks away and the suspects were arrested on undisclosed charges.
The officer was married with two children. My sympathies go out to the family, friends and coworkers of the officer.
