CHP reveals name of wanted woman who plunged from Bay Bridge.

SAN FRANCISCO — The California Highway Patrol has released the name of a woman they’re looking for who either jumped or fell from the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge trying to evade police in a stolen car. It’ll take more than a car crash and a 70-foot plunge off of a California bridge into chilly water to stop a woman wanted for questioning in a car theft. A dump truck driver later told the CHP that he had picked up a female hitchhiker who matched the woman’s description and drove her to an undisclosed location. The driver of a stolen Nissan Maxima abandoned the car after a spin-out on the San Francisco Bay Bridge, survived a nearly seven-story drop off the edge, and then hitched a ride to freedom, authorities said.

The 70-foot fall from the Bay Bridge is quite different from a fall from the Golden Gate Bridge, which is about 245 feet down and very difficult to survive. A trooper happened to be passing in the other direction at the time and whipped around to see the three women hopping a rail onto a San Francisco Bridge walkway.

As authorities scanned the water by land and air, motorists down river began to call 911 with reports of a sopping wet woman who was trying to flag down cars. “Number one, want to make sure she’s OK,” Williams said. “Number two, we want to determine exactly what’s going on with the stolen vehicle.” A Massachusetts man, who gave a salute in his shirtless mug shot, assaulted seven Revere police officers after what was supposed to be a simple traffic stop, police said in a statement. That started a violent spree that included attacking three officers who tried to arrest him, and three more cops once he was booked at the police station, authorities said. The woman who fell or jumped from the bridge is believed to have been driving the Nissan, which investigators later determined was reported stolen out of Los Angeles. CHP officers are still trying to track down the woman and are following up on the address listed on her recovered ID, but have not determined if she still lives there.

But when officers tried to escort him to jail, he allegedly responded “what the [expletive] are you talking about?” He then became violent again crouching in a boxer’s stance in a corner and challenging the officers to a fight. Parker was charged with assault and battery, malicious destruction of property, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, and is being held on $25,000.
