LIVERMORE, CA (BIKER DAD)–Police in California are looking for a pickup driver who tried to kill a motorcycle cop. He rammed his giant pickup in reverse and plowed over the bike. Thankfully the officer was able to get out of the way.

It happened Friday in Livermore, California. The motor cop was doing patrols in the area as part of a crackdown on speeding and other dangerous driving when he pulled over the Toyota Tundra. As he was about to approach the driver, the truck suddenly sped towards him in reverse according to a press release, “the Officer stopped the suspect vehicle for a vehicle code violation and the suspect driver yielded to the side of the road. Just as the LPD Officer was beginning to dismount his motorcycle, the suspect driver abruptly put the truck into reverse and accelerated at a high rate of speed backward directly at the Officer and his motorcycle, leaving tire skid marks on the roadway. The Officer was forced to jump from his motorcycle into an incoming lane of traffic.”

The press release says the officer was able to escape “the blatant attack and the potential of being struck by passing traffic. The suspect vehicle backed over the Officer’s police motorcycle causing significant damage and rendering it disabled.” The officer was injured and treated then released from the hospital.

Police say the truck sped off. Police gave chase, but gave up when it became too dangerous. The Toyota Tundra crew cab (4 doors), brown in color had been pulled over for a code violation.

“This act of violence against our officer is absolutely unacceptable, said Police Chief Jeramy Young said, “our officers put their lives on the line for our community and an attack on an officer is an attack on our community. We will work tirelessly to bring this offender to justice.”
