Interesting take indeed, and I do agree with your statements.

As a suggestion for an improved plot, perhaps the red jacket's bike could fail 
to follow the ambulance due to some other random event (another vehicle in auto 
pilot, perhaps), in such a way that there is no need to make it crash, but just 
slow down so the green jacket can finish his goal.

As for how to tie this alternative plot to the arrest of only the red jacket 
biker, the other vehicle in autopilot which the red jacket biker meets can be a 
police car and, although there would be no crash, the high speed was a danger 
to other citizens, and the vehicle was full of past felonies. To solve the case 
of the green jacket biker, he could go to court but would soon be freed due to 
proofs that he had collected showing the good hackers' attempt to warn the 
ambulance manufacturers, and also due to the testimony of the ambulance driver.
