The collision caused significant damage to both the motorcycle and the bus. The suspect, realizing the severity of the situation, abandoned his motorcycle and attempted to flee on foot. However, after a brief foot chase, Irvine police officers were able to apprehend him and take him into custody.

Upon searching the suspect, officers discovered he owned various illicit and suspicious items, including a crowbar, a switchblade, narcotics, credit cards that did not belong to him, and identification cards belonging to other individuals. These findings suggested the suspect was involved in multiple criminal activities beyond just the traffic violations.

The suspect, 37-year-old Amit Kumar Yadav of Irvine, was booked on numerous charges. These charges included possession of stolen information, hit and run, carrying a switchblade, resisting arrest, and narcotics possession. This incident highlights the serious consequences of engaging in criminal activities and attempting to evade law enforcement.
