9:00 pm UPDATE Via CHP
This afternoon (2/7/23) around 2:30 pm, CHP Contra Costa attempted to make a traffic stop on a grey Saturn Vue on eastbound SR-4 near Bailey Road. The Saturn fled from the officer and a pursuit ensued. The Saturn continued eastbound and exited the freeway at Contra Loma Boulevard but continued through the intersection and up the Contra Loma on-ramp to eastbound SR-4. The Saturn collided into the rear of a tanker truck that was traveling on the on-ramp. The driver of the Saturn was extricated and flown by emergency helicopter to the hospital for major injuries. The driver of the tanker truck was not injured. This incident is still under investigation.

Play stupid games and win stupid prizes. One more little terrorist off our streets!
Hopefully god doesnt punish you or someone you love for having such a hateful thing to say about another life. You couldve just stayed quiet but instead you want to show the world how much of a piece of garbage you are. Discusting.
A traffic stop……oh, if only the CHP vehicles were equipped with radios. If only the CHP had aerial backup…oh, wait…they DO! So, a woman dies, and countless innocent bystanders are endangered…..ya, know? C’mon CHP.
Innocent bystanders were endangered by the speeding ans reckless driving of the offender. The fault is with the offender, not the CHP.
Who is suppose to be the proffessionals though? Who is suppose to think bigger?
Why’d she run?
What? Did you hit the snooze button? She was driving recklessly before they attempted to stop her! I bet you complain about the highway 4 drivers every day too! Waaahhh! You clearly can’t be satisfied regardless!
This why they have a no chase zone in oakland 🤦🏻♂️ should have one in the bay area too 🤦🏻♂️ putting innocent ppl at risk at high speeds. Chp didnt do the job right the chp is at fault n should face some charges just like the Oakland police officers
Chp knowing its more dangerous on freeway why chase a person who is capable of crashing or losing control and taking innocent lifes just for speeding and crashing. Not safe at all. This couldve been way worser if the tanker exploded innocent lifes on the freeway would be in so much danger and no route to save them selfs if this was to be a worser situation everyone wouldve been stuck in traffic with danger Chp do a better job
@Jhadis, and the offending driver could have simply pulled over. Join the CHP and show us all how you would do it better!
The CHP has a job to do. I thank them for their efforts. Who knows why the driver was being reckless, failed to respond to law enforcement’s attempt to pull her over, let’s place responsibility for the outcome where it rightfully belongs. With the driver.
The fault in this lies completely with the criminal . People are so stupid to blame the police. There is no chase, crash, endangering or dead criminals if the criminal isn’t committing crimes.
Bless you CHP for the work you do.
The good citizens appreciate you.
How about let’s be mad at the person BREAKING THE LAW?🤦♂️
Good. She got what she deserved. People on 4 are crazy driving their EVs no I e can hear coming up behind them at 100+ mph. Thank you CHP for getting another douche off of 4.
I thought Anne Heche had already passed———–
