New Developments in Police Officer Fatal Car Accident Case

More information has been found in connection with a fatal car accident in which a police officer was going over a hundred miles an hour and crossed a median slamming into a passenger vehicle in November of 2007. The car accident killed two sisters and injured two other sisters. The family of the sisters who were injured in the car accident have filed a personal injury suit against the police officer, claiming negligence. There is a Act that grants immunities to state employees for mistakes made while performing official duties. The attorney for the girl’s family claims that since the accident occurred while the officer was talking on the phone, emailing and driving at excessive speeds, the officer cannot claim that he is entitled to protection from this Immunity Act. This issue is still pending in this case, and the police officer has criminal charges for the death of the two girls and injuries of the two others pending.
