William N. Wong

Police Officer William Wong and Police Officer Arthur Soo Hoo were killed when their police car was struck by a vehicle driven at approximately 85 mph.

The occupants in the vehicle were fleeing from a drug deal gone bad. The vehicle ran a red light at the intersection of North Broadway and College Streets and struck the patrol car the officers were in.

Both suspects fled to Mexico where they were arrested by Mexican authorities but released because of the violent drug cartel to which they belonged. In 2003 the passenger suspect was arrested in Vacavile, California, and pleaded guilty to a manslaughter charge. As of 2011 the driver is still at large and is to still believed to be in Mexico.
