CHP Officer Lucas F. Chellew dies after crashing motorcycle on Fruitridge Road during chase in south Sacramento, California
It happened in south Sacramento before 6 p.m. Wednesday. Witnesses say that Officer Lucas F. Chellew was chasing someone, lost control, and crashed into a pole.
The suspect was moving so fast a camera missed his part of the westbound pursuit, but did catch two different angles of Officer Chellew giving chase.
Dutch Bros. on Stockton Boulevard in Elk Grove and The Human Bean on Coppervale Drive in Rocklin are holding fundraisers in honor of the officer, with funds going to Chellew’s widow and two young children.
In the months that have passed she said there is never a time she doesn't think about him. She wears a necklace with his wedding band around her neck everyday. She said she can't imagine being without it.
