Porche Chased by CHP Vanishes in Castro Valley

A high-speed chase that began in Livermore ended with the suspect eluding capture near the Castro Valley Boulevard offramp.


The California Highway Patrol says a pursuit that reached speeds up to 110 miles per hour ended in frustration Thursday afternoon when officers chasing a white Porche lost sight of the suspect vehicle near the Castro Valley Boulevard exit.

The chase began in Livermore at 12:41 pm when CHP officers tried to pull over a white Porche with two occupants that was traveling east on Highway 580 near Airway Boulevard, according to a report in the Mercury News.

The Porche exited at Isabel Avenue and got back on 580 heading east, pursued by the CHP until officers lost sight of the suspects near Castro Valley.

Police remain on the lookout for the white Porche but its license plate is unknown.

I cannot figure out how the CHP could not catch a porche. While there are a lot of porches in Castro Valley, porches lack wheels ususally unless they are on a trailer and being moved by a large porch mover. Not real fast. Not a real challenge to a real CHP officer. Perhaps the CHP were late or confused? I guess it happens. Now if it was a Porsche that is understandable. Patch and its staff needs to understand that it is under attack by the Homonyms who threaten our well being and noble Standard American English. Patch needs to do a better job or either identifying the pathetic Homonymoniacs who write this so poorly or perhaps to couch the article in different terms and assert that this is the best that the local schools can produce. In any event I am guess that it was a Porsche that alluded the Chippies and not a Porche. Patch needs to get its Esses in the right place.

The Porche probably parked in the driveway of development home where all the porches were indistinguishable, one from another.

If the chase started in LIvermore and ended in Castro Valley, they would have been headed West not East. Come on, Patch, grade school stuff here.

Wow, I generally like Patch's reporting, but I have ten-year-old students that can write a better written article than this.
