A driver who ran over a California Highway Patrol officer's
motorcycle to escape a traffic stop in Fremont Sunday afternoon was later
arrested in Union City after two hit-and-run crashes, Fremont police said.
A CHP officer pulled over a suspected stolen BMW Z3 convertible on
Interstate Highway 880 near the Decoto Road off-ramp at 4:42 p.m., according
to Fremont police.
The suspect reversed the BMW, drove over the CHP officer's
motorcycle and left the highway onto Decoto Road, Fremont police said.
The officer was not injured.
The suspect fled east on Decoto Road into Union City and caused
two crashes along the way - including one near the intersection of Decoto
Road and Fremont Boulevard in Fremont, Fremont police said.
Union City police eventually found the vehicle abandoned in Union
City and then found and arrested the suspect, Fremont police said.
