“On April 12, 2020, at approximately 6:05 pm, the South Sacramento Area was notified of a large sideshow occurring on Florin Road at Palmer House Drive in unincorporated Sacramento County.
Multiple units responded and upon arriving on scene it was determined that approximately 100-150 vehicles and approximately 300 people were on scene. While attempting to stop the sideshow activity, a black Chevy Camaro attempted to evade capture from a CHP unit and fled the scene westbound on Florin Road.
A separate CHP unit was responding to assist and was presented with the evading vehicle approaching head on with his patrol vehicle. The officer turned left and stopped as the Chevy approached his location. The driver of the Chevy struck the right rear of the patrol vehicle. The Chevy lost its right front tire in the process and stopped west of the collision scene.
The driver, Christian Alvarado Michaca, aged 18, from Santa Rosa, was taken into custody and booked into the Sacramento County Jail for felony evading. Two juvenile passengers, 17 years old and 16 years old, were transported to a local hospital for medical treatment. The officer of the patrol vehicle that was stuck sustained no injuries.
The California Highway Patrol would like to remind everyone that sideshows are not only illegal, they are extremely dangerous. When you mix thousands of pounds of vehicle with speed, it takes only a second for a tragedy to occur-endangering life, risking injury, and causing property damage.”
