Drivers involved in a 100-mph road rage incident through Fresno on Wednesday careened past an undercover officer and forced him to the side of the road to avoid a collision, police reported.
The officer was on the Highway 41-Highway 180 interchange when he found himself between one vehicle and a white Ford, according to Lt. Mark Hudson.
The officer took to the side of the roadway as the two vehicles sped past but then directed a police helicopter to the racing vehicles.
The cars left 180 at Peach Avenue and continued south at high speed. Officers caught up with the Ford, but not the second vehicle.
