HWY 1764 on the overpass in front of Mainland Medical Hospital
Witnesses stated that the young driver of the mustang was racing another vehicle along HWY 1764. The officer was getting off work at Mainland Hospital and had merged up onto HWY 1764. The other vehicles then came upon him at a fast speed and the mustang swerved to avoid the officer patrol car. The mustang then hit the inside retaining wall and came back across the lanes causing the patrol car to hit the guardrail. The mustang then hit the guardrail and both vehicles slid to a stop.
There was no evidence that could be seen that either vehicle made contact with the other. The other vehicle involved in the race never stopped.
