    CHP Officer Dies After Being Hit By Fleeing Vehicle

    Suspect Taken Into Custody In Shingle Springs

    POSTED: 1:11 pm PDT July 31, 2007
    UPDATED: 5:25 pm PDT July 31, 2007

    SHINGLE SPRINGS, Calif. -- A California Highway Patrol officer died Tuesday afternoon after he was hit by a fleeing vehicle earlier in the day, the CHP said.

    Doug Scott Russell, 46, was a 22-year veteran of the CHP.
    Authorities have named David Zanon as the suspected driver of the vehicle. He is listed in fair condition at Sutter Roseville Medical Center. Officers said Zanon was a known drug offender, and may have been living out of his car.

    Meanwhile, eastbound Highway 50 is being diverted off the freeway near Shingle Springs as officials conduct an investigation. Westbound Highway 50 is open.

    Officials said the incident began at about 12:30 p.m. when a Sacramento County sheriff's deputy approached a vehicle at 9975 Florin Road and attempted to roust a person sleeping inside.
    The person in the car started it and took off, leading police on a chase eastbound on Highway 50, said Jasper Begay, spokesman for the CHP.

    Along the way, a CHP officer attempted to deploy a tack strip in an attempt to flatten the tires of the fleeing vehicle.
    Police said the vehicle swerved toward the officer. The officer responded by firing at the vehicle. The officer was then then struck.

    The chase ended at the Missouri Flat Road exit of Highway 50 in Shingle Springs. The person driving the fleeing car was taken into custody.

    The officer, who was not immediately identified, was taken to University of California, Davis Medical Center in Sacramento.
    Authorities said a man driving a white sport utility vehicle may have witnessed the incident. The driver is urged to call the CHP at 916-861-1300 with any information.

    We got your beat now.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    so sad to hear of this..
    thoughts to all involved and
    he will be truely remembered

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
