CHP: Unlicensed Fairfield driver hits parked patrol car

From page A4 | May 29, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — Russell Crane, 24, who is accused of accidentally driving a Datsun 280Z into a California Highway Patrol car parked off Highway 70 in Sutter County, has never been issued a driver’s license, the CHP says.

Reports of a reckless driver heading southbound at about 4 p.m. Monday on the highway led a CHP officer to park next to the paved shoulder to intercept the vehicle driven by Fairfield resident Crane, the CHP said.

A vehicle matching the description provided by drivers approached the parked patrol car and was making an unsafe lane change at a high rate of speed when the 1976 Datsun 280Z rotated and slid toward the highway shoulder, the CHP said.

The front corner of the vehicle struck the rear corner of the patrol car parked near Striplin Road, the CHP said. The officer complained of pain to his neck but did not require hospital treatment.

Crane had no injuries. The Datsun was impounded because Crane is unlicensed, the CHP said, and the patrol car required towing because of damage to the vehicle.

There were no indications of drug or alcohol use by Crane, the CHP said.

    I bet he was one of those honkey tonk cowboys.. because if he were a homeboy or BLACK.. FF residents would be all over this numb nuts story! And the daily republic wouldn't have said he 'accidentally' ran into a CHP officer. If he was black they would have accused him of attempted murder and threatened to hang him at high noon!

    I'm with you suebaby. What's hilarious is the daily negatory commentators who MUST oblige the community with their ridiculous assumptions usually aimed at blacks and other minorities, are in uproar because they have been challenged by THE TRUTH! this story was written far to eloquently to be in reference to a black or brown Russell crane.

    to all who says that Mr. Crane is supposed to be white he actually mixed so now you all sound stupid for your racial comments and believe this the boy really has never been in trouble with the l;aw except having a butterfly knife in richmond ca.he is really is a good kid so leave the DR alone i read it everyday and if what you say is true then and " sorry to say " its because they are getting caught for there crimes more then any other race ... and i am latina..
