A motorist captured bizarre video of a crash involving a California Highway Patrol (CHP) cruiser on Sunday afternoon.
The video was captured on the Bay Bridge connecting San Francisco and Oakland, California.
Troopers were initially called to the scene for reports of an uncooperative driver in a tow truck. The driver in the tow vehicle initially fled the tow plaza headed in the wrong direction back towards Oakland, but eventually turned around and rammed a CHP vehicle in the toll plaza.
Chaos at near the Bay Bridge in Oakland this evening. A tow truck is going the wrong way on the 580 at high speed, nearly hitting traffic (including us), and there’s a busted cop car by the toll booths. Cops everywhere. pic.twitter.com/6K3JCFVMuT
