Anaheim - On Tuesday, August 14, 2000, at approximately 11:00 p.m., Los Angeles Police Officer Michael Almasy, a six-year veteran, was traveling southbound on the Santa Ana (Interstate 5) Freeway at Lincoln in the City of Anaheim when he spotted a stranded motorist along side the Freeway. As Officer Almasy attempted to change lanes to assist the motorist, he was rear ended by a male motorist who was driving a Dodge Ram pick up truck.
