I saw the police on the way to this. An officer pased me on Blue Clay at over 100 mph. A few of my friends where passed by oficers flying to the scene at EXTREME speeds as well. They put a lot more into getting to the scene when one of there own is involved. Even at the risk of public saftey. They had mutiple cruisers and fire trucks on the scene.There was a truck and trailer with "Advanced Life Support System" written on it. One vehicle was thrown into the ditch on the right side of the road.It looked alot more serious than this article is stating. This article did not mention that multiple witness stated that the officer was at fault.

Mike, you should become a police office if you are that good at telling how fast someone is traveling. Hell, you wouldn't even need a Radar gun..

You are the man..
