An investigation revealed that the two officers were out for a traffic stop and stopped another pickup truck when the crash occurred. Both vehicles were covered in dust and were parked along a narrow section of the canyon when they became involved in the crash, authorities said. The four injured people and the pickup truck were found in a shallow spot on the canyon wall.
The officers involved in the incident are being referred to as the „LAPD Officer 1, 2 and 3“ to protect their identities.
„The officers on scene have an extensive and complete criminal history in the state of Texas, including many previous traffic stops, and the recent criminal conduct has caused a family member and friend to lose their job, and an employee in our department to lose her job as well,“ said Lt. James Bowers, a DPS spokesman.
The officer-involved shooting remains under investigation.
Police were investigating whether it was random or if the drivers were acting in any way, with the investigation ongoing, accordi우리카지노ng to TCSO spokesman Officer Ryan Riddle. The DPS said it w우리카지노ould not provide further details on the shooting.
In July 2014, TCSO officials confirmed that four people were involved in a crash near Fort Worth’s I-35N exit while driving a red pickup truck. The four were not injured in the fatal crash, but said they feared for their safety.
