police chase

In Flint Monday, a judge will hear arguments over dismissing a lawsuit concerning police car chases.

In 2014, a state police trooper tried to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle in Flint, which sped away. A high speed chase ensued. It ended when the fleeing vehicle caused a chain reaction crash that left one person dead and another permanently injured.

It will soon be up to a Genesee County judge to decide if a lawsuit challenging the Michigan State Police chase policy will go to trial.

In recent years, state police troopers assigned to patrol Flint were involved in several high-speed chases that ended in serious accidents where people were killed or severely injured.

In the coming weeks, a judge will decide if a lawsuit against the state police will go forward or be dismissed.
