LAPD Captain Andy Neiman told the CBS affiliate: ‘It’s a very sad day here. Just another example of how reckless driving – regardless of who it is – causes death.’ 

Neiman maintained that, contrary to earlier reports, officers had not been following the bike at the time the accident occurred.

Many police stations have policies against motorcycle pursuits. It all depends on the situation.

“There have been some claims that we were following this motorcycle. Neiman stated, “I just want it to be very clear. At no time were they in pursuit.”
