Crash Victim Sues Police

A woman who was injured after a felon escaping from police crashed into her is suing the police department in Oakland, California. Patricia Messner was driving home when violent felon Wayne Gordon crashed head-on into her car driving the wrong way on I-580. Gordon had carjacked a man at gunpoint before making his escape. Messner is accusing the police of being responsible for her injuries, and says they "caused the colliding vehicle to be traveling the wrong way on the interstate, with no headlights, at a recklessly high rate of speed." There has been no comment as of yet from the police department concerning the impending litigation.
