Dash Cam Footage: Cop Speeding With No Lights Kills Pedestrian

| |

police chase

Last September, a police officer in Berrien County, Michigan was racing to the scene of a domestic abuse incident, when he struck and killed a pedestrian. Based on evidence that was later collected at the scene, in addition to eyewitness reports and the dash cam footage, it was determined that officer Eugene Anderson was driving 64mph in a 35mph zone. While it’s not unheard of for a cop to drive like that, what makes this case especially egregious, is the fact that Anderson was speeding at night and didn’t turn on his lights or siren.

Anderson has since been prosecuted for the death of the pedestrian, 48-year-old Kimberly Bedford. His lawyer argued that the speed he drove couldn’t be proven, and Bedford was intoxicated when she crossed the road. Still, the prosecutor found him at fault for Bedford’s death, and said “If an officer chooses to speed without lights and siren, then he has to accept responsibility for his actions.” The officer has since been found guilty, and faces a year in jail.

Gee, I wonder how much time you or I would spend in jail if we plowed through a pedestrian while speeding?

    The law is very clear on this. For all enegency vehicles. Any thing over 5mpr. over posted speed limit they must use lights. Over 15 .lights & sierin. So he did not know what a law was to even drive a vehicle on the job? Also any thing over 15mpr. is reckless driving under D.O.T. law. So automatic 5 year suspention of driving permit is the law there. Now next up Federal court were more charges can be brought.

        The jay walker did. NOW it is time for the Cop to.

      • Yes side with the murdering pig. Pigs get away with murder because of the dirty unions. They protect all dirty union workers. Union workers get in trouble send them home with pay.

    Both are at fault. The cop speeding and her crossing where not prohibited. Like it or not, that’s the law.

    Not as much as we have been led to believe. In Washington state pedestrians must leave the roadway sidewalk when there is no shoulder or sidewalk to be on. Mostly effects country roads but there you have it. One of my neighbors was fined for walking on the road at night when his truck broke down under this law.
