LRPD cruiser disabled in wreck and chase

Posted By on Fri, Apr 5, 2013 at 12:21 PM

A hit-and-run driver eluded pursuing Little Rock cops in a series of events that began at 33rd and Bishop about 9:20 p.m. last night.

The report from Sgt. Cassandra Davis:

On April 4, 2013, at approximately 2121 hours, Officer Harris was on routine patrol south of Roosevelt Road and had just turned north on S. Bishop Street from W. 34th Street. As he entered the intersection of W. 33rd Street and S. Bishop Street, a small black passenger car heading east on W. 33rd Street disregarded the stop sign and struck Officer Harris’ patrol car.

Immediately, the suspect vehicle fled the scene traveling north on Bishop Street. Officer Harris notified communications of the hit-and-run accident and informed them that he was pursuing the vehicle. After a short distance, Officer Harris advised that his car was smoking and he could no longer continue in the pursuit.

Almost immediately, Officer Osmundson picked up the fleeing vehicle and continued the pursuit. Several moments later, Officer Osmundson lost the suspect vehicle, but found it unoccupied and parked next to an alley with the driver’s door open and the engine running.

The suspect vehicle was inventoried and stored at the Downtown Property Room. The patrol car, which was disabled in the accident, was towed to J.E. Davis.

Officer Harris was experiencing a headache believed to be caused by his head striking the driver’s side window during the collision but could immediately return to full duty with no restrictions.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
