Wrongful death suit filed against city for tragic ending to a police pursuit
Posted on October 26th, 2009 by Zane Cagle
The family of a Montana nurse killed by a drunk driver who was fleeing police has filed a wrongful death and negligence suit against the city and county where the accident occurred. The plaintiffs allege that the city police officers and county deputies violated official pursuit policies when chasing the drunk driver. Furthermore, the suit claims the two law enforcement agencies lied to the public, stating that the sheriff deputy called off the pursuit several blocks before the fatal collision in order to avoid liability.
