A police chase lead to the death of a San Francisco woman, and her 20-month-old child was taken to a hospital with critical injuries, on August 26, 2009. The crash occured in Oakland, California, when a man in an Acura Integra who was fleeing police ran a stop sign and smashed into the back of her black Hyundai Accent. The police were reportedly attempting to stop the man for speeding.
The impact of the crash was so strong that it pushed the woman’s Accent for almost a block. The suspect was later arrested, and an internal investigation is underway concerning the Oakland Police Department’s pursuit policy.
