On September 15 at about 9 a.m., an officer assigned to the Riverside Police Department Traffic Bureau attempted to stop a Chevy Silverado truck near Essex Street and Mountain View Avenue.
According to the Riverside Police Department, the driver tried to evade the officer, making several quick turns before slamming his brakes and stopping on Mountain View Avenue. As the officer parked behind the truck and stepped out of his vehicle, the driver put the truck in reverse and intentionally backed into the police car, narrowly missing the officer. The crash caused the airbags to deploy and move the police car back about eight feet, causing it to become disabled.
The driver sped away and was not located. The officer was unharmed.
The suspect driver was described as a white male adult between the ages of 40 and 50. He was last seen wearing reading glasses and a hat. The suspect vehicle was described as a 1998 to 2002 white Chevy Silverado truck with a possible partial temporary paper plate of AZ4–78. The truck has an extended cab, gray hood with chipped paint, and previous collision damage to the front of the bumper area.
