Highlighted key words.

Looks like OSP and WSP took the same driving classes.
The description of the rider matches alot of riders I see on the road.

I don't advocate running, but I'm not feeling very sorry for OSP here. Maybe I'm a bad person..
Honestly Im with you .... Not to mjention I thought the "No Chase Bikes" policyy was still ordered unless they are felons

if i would have seen her crash, i'd be tempted to stop and laugh.

screw the 5-0.

You stay classy, now.

Silly reporter, they forgot the all-important key words they use for us.

“ Quote:
The motorcycle was last seen eastbound at a high rate of speed. Two vehicles that were westbound and may have witnessed the trooper's crash failed to stop and drove past the crash scene toward Clatskanie.

Spurlock, who has worked for OSP for 6 years, was later transported by OSP to Columbia Memorial Hospital in Astoria where she was examined for minor injuries and released. She was using safety restraints. Speed may have been a factor in the officers crash.

Reading that part pissed me off.
I don't care who it is or what they do, if you see someone crash especially at a high rate of speed, stop and render aid.
Glad she's okay. If the OSP really wanted help finding this person, release the dash cam footage.

I'm glad she is alright and no one else was hurt, but I do agree with the above. The motorcyclists speeding almost seems like a moot point after all that.

If the passing cars didn't actually witness the accident it's self, I would have drove right on past thinking 'speed trap' by the looks of the above picture at a glance.

I probably would have grenaded the brakes thinking it was a speed trap and then been checking the mirror to see if they caught me. Then let out a sigh of relief when the lights didn't come on, on my tail.

Sounds like the trooper needs to take a few track days and maybe a drift course. Shouldn't be doing any high-speed chasing in a Vic anyway. She got stupid. Glad she's not badly hurt.

Please correct me here, but I also thought there was a "no pursuit" order for motorcycles?

Man do I ever feel safe knowing there are cops like this patrolling the highways keeping those speeding bikers in check. Tax dollars at work right there.

She is gonna get ribbing from me period, glad she is OK, but she could have just as easily died or killed another person on the road, which infuriates me. I don't care if god himself came out of nowhere and threw her off the damn road, she could have easily just radioed ahead and sustained a reasonable pace behind the fleeing vehicle. But instead pushed her luck and wrecked the police vehicle.

She is trained on what to do, and it did not stick, I'm sure the chief will send her back to boot camp to learn a little more on handling eluding vehicles.
And, the motorcyclist could have also injured someone else or himself. Sorry, but speeding is speeding (whether or not you agree with the law) and then he ran on top of that. Pretty sure that would qualify for felony evasion. The accident may have been caused by her inability to control the vehicle, but she wouldn't have been going as fast if she wasn't chasing a motorcyclist that was eluding. How do you know that she didn't call ahead? You are making assumptions about a situation that you know nothing about.

Sorry, but chasing down criminals is what police do, get over it. You guys are acting like she got a medal for wrecking the car or something. The "I hate pigs" routine is getting pretty old on this site. Grow up, take some responsibility for your actions and stop blaming the people who enforce the laws that you are breaking. Sadly, if she had hit another vehicle and hurt someone, the cop haters on this site would still be blaming the officer and not the motorcyclist.

If she was out catching real criminals she wouldn't have wrecked her car trying to chase somebody who I as a tax payer couldn't give a fly fucking about.
