No charges will be filed against the officer involved in the police chase and deadly motorcycle crash in Mishawaka during the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
The pursuit took place on in the early morning hours of Saturday, May 26, after police were called the Phoenix Bar on Lincolnway West on the report of an assault.
When they arrived, the suspect, Rebecca Mack, 41, climbed on the back of a motorcycle driven by John Williams, 46, of Mishawaka, who took off.
The officer followed the motorcycle which crashed near the Marathon gas station on East Jefferson Road. Williams died at the scene.
Williams traveled at high rates of speed, disregarded traffic lights and failed to stop for the officer who was in pursuit, according to a news release from the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office. The officer was a substantial distance from the crash site and the officer was not at fault, the news release stated.
Mishawaka Police are conducting an internal investigation to determine whether the proper policies were followed by the officer involved in the pursuit, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at ABC 57.
Mack will be in court in July on a battery charge for the incident at the bar.
