Re: Saratoga Springs Motorcycle Accident 3/20/18 was in fact a high speed chase 


Hello.  Just so you know the police did not disclose to you the full story.  The motorcyclist killed was being Chased by cops.  I live in Saratoga Springs.  My wife witnessed the Motorcyclist evading or fleeing several police cars on Redwood road and Commercial Drive.  The motorcyclist rode right past her then flipped around heading south on Redwood  then turned left onto Crossroads Blvd heading East.  That is when he ran into the White SUV.


At around 8:50 - 8:55 pm I, along with a big crowd of neighbors who had stopped to gawk and rubber neck, personally saw the aftermath of the cops and first responders taking alternating  turns working on the guy doing CPR.  They did that for 20 plus minutes till they “called it” at around 9:25 pm ish.  I watched life flight land and everything.


The thing that troubles me is that the all the news outlets are reporting this as if it was just another fatal motorcycle accident because that is what one sided story the police are telling them.


You news people need to inform the public with correct facts about the story. The guy was in trouble for something and was running away for a big reason.  He did not want to go to jail.


Please will you return to the police and investigate Further for the truth and do an updated cover story.


Feel free to reach out to me.
