A motorcycle being pursued by Eureka Police crashed on Fairway Drive at Ridgecrest Drive in southeastern Eureka about 11 p.m., according to the CHP Traffic Incident Information Page.

An ambulance is responding but not with lights and sirens.

Fuel spilled on the road and is creating a hazardous condition, according to a report by an officer at the scene speaking over the scanner.

  • Grzymski !

  • Someone has likely been watching movies depicting motorcycle chases, or races, and imagined him/herself as that agile and able.
    Reality check! Bummer.

    • I have to laugh at these fools. They almost always eat shit on a simple curve. Losers! If you’re going to run from the cops, bring your A game.

      • If it were your mother or your child hurt running from the police I doubt you’d think it was so funny. A little sympathy for the family please.

        • If it were my kid I would tell him what an idiot he was and to suck it up because I would not support him ie enable his bad behavior. I would do that because I do love him and will not reward or condone bad behavior. That is the problem to many parents coddle their kids when they screw up instead of letting them learn a hard lesson.

        • Yeah my mom is f-ing notorious

  • Evel Knievel is dead and this dude don’t feel so good himself!

  • [edit] Power Trips Kill Cyclists

    Why do police always take the bait to chase motorcyclists? Is it because they know they can force the cyclist to crash…. There is no logical reason for officers to pursue motorcyclists unless it is for a serious violent felony. The cops are high on power trips, especially rookies and young cops with an ax of hatred to grind why must they pursue for cyclists for misdemeanors?

    • Humm [edit] Why do people run from cops and endanger not only themselves but the public? Talk about arrogant and self centered. FYI Police usually do not chase vehicles unless it is more than a simple violation. Doubly so since they arrest almost no one due to jail overcrowding and coved. Play stupid games win stupid prized like a trip to the hospital or morgue when you wreak. He chose to drive like a fool and suffered the repercussions, its not the cops fault he is an idiot.

    • good point they should not chase child molesters and murders either, same logic. You sir are a dumb ass!!

    • Cops are Bad Guys

      Exactly right, most chases begin for small infractions, the crime does not justify a chase, everyone ready to just bow down to the mfers, time to defund the police asap and bring empathy and sanity back as a moral discipline.

  • Cops are like cats…if it runs they chase it… doesn’t matter the reason.
