  • Train Hit Police Vehicle After Cops Left Detained Woman Inside, Parked on Tracks

    She's in the hospital with 'serious bodily injuries'.

    I have a hard time seeing how this could be anything other than attempted murder. Like, you don't just 'accidentally' park on train tracks, go detain a woman, bring her back, lock her inside your patrol car, and then magically miss the sounds of a high speed freight train coming down the tracks you visibly parked on.

    Train Hit Police Vehicle After Cops Left Detained Woman Inside, Parked on Tracks, Authorities Say. She Is Now in ‘Serious’ Condition.

    Cops allegedly left a female suspect inside a patrol vehicle that one of them parked on train tracks — a train struck it. Now the young woman is in “serious” condition.

    All this stemmed from an alleged road rage incident.

    “Although early in the investigation, it’s believed the initial call was reported as an alleged road rage incident involving a firearm in Ft. Lupton earlier in the evening,” the Colorado Bureau of Investigation said in a statement obtained by Law&Crime.

    An officer with the Platteville Police Department found the vehicle on U.S. Route 85 and County Road 38, the agency said.

    “The driver of the vehicle pulled to a stop just past the railroad tracks, with the patrol officer behind the car on the tracks,” the CBI said. “Two Ft. Lupton officers arrived on the scene and the team conducted a high-risk traffic stop and detained a lone female occupant (age 20, Greeley) placing her in the back of the Platteville patrol car detained on suspicion of felony menacing. While the officers cleared the suspect vehicle as part of the investigation, a train traveling northbound struck the PPD patrol car.”

    The woman, identified only as a 20-year-old from the city of Greeley, was taken to a hospital there for treatment, authorities said. She sustained “serious bodily injuries,” the CBI said.

    “Her condition is unknown at this time,” they said.

    Authorities are splitting up this investigation because of the various elements involved, the CBI said. Fort Lupton police are looking into the incidents leading up to the initial call to cops. The Colorado State Patrol is handling the “serious-injury traffic accident” of the train and Platteville police patrol vehicle.

    “The Colorado Bureau of Investigation has been requested to investigate the serious bodily injury to the individual while in police custody,” the CBI said.

    The investigation is ongoing. Platteville Police Chief Carl Dwyer said in a statement that the officer involved is on paid administrative leave during the investigation.

    “The Town of Platteville is cooperatively working with CBI and CSP during their investigation regarding this incident,” he said. “The Platteville Police Department has nothing to add to CBI’s press release yesterday.”

      The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

        Sounds more like just plain stupidity than malice. But the officer is still responsible for the well-being of anyone in their custody, accident or not.

          The car looks like crumpled up tin foil. I am amazed anyone survived that.

            Yeah, common sense should tell you that they'd never do that on purpose, knowing full well it would explode into a media frenzy, and they could very well lose their jobs.

            They should STILL lose their jobs due to stupidity and ineptitude.

              C'mon dude, you don't just accidentally park on railroad track unless your car broke down as you were crossing them.

              You certainly don't accidentally park on the tracks, get out and walk from those tracks to another vehicle, take a person from that vehicle, walk back to the tracks and put them in your vehicle that's still parked on the tracks and lock it and then walk back, once again over the tracks, and then miss a diesel train coming down the tracks while you're a few feet away searching the other car.

              and this is a small little town where trains travel daily, and the town is literally situated next to the tracks. The police of that town are there every day around those tracks.

                Agreed. Looking at the video it looks like there wasn't a powered crossing sign or gates there, just a plain RR crossing sign. And I am betting the train didn't blow his horn either, so they might not have seen or heard the train coming. But regardless leaving a patrol car on the tracks was irresponsible even without a person in the back. They should have known better and told the guy to pull up after the stop, or moved the car after they put her in the back.

                  Yeah, I don't. Especially because two of my friends were killed by a train at a crossing when I was about 8 - left an indelible mark on my soul.

                  You certainly don't accidentally park on the tracks, get out and walk from those tracks to another vehicle, take a person from that vehicle, walk back to the tracks and put them in your vehicle that's still parked on the tracks and lock it and then walk back, once again over the tracks, and then miss a diesel train coming down the tracks while you're a few feet away searching the other car.
                  Even a reasonably intelligent person would not do that -- but it doesn't automatically go to malice. Some people are just mega-screw-ups.

                  I need to see some evidence that there was actually malice, forethought, premeditation, whatever.

                    Reminds me of the woman killed by Georgia police a couple months ago when they put her in the back of the car, handcuffed, and never closed the door and she went flying out of the vehicle on a turn and died due to head trauma.

                    And sadly with the state of qualified immunity, it'll be hard for either family to effectively sue thebofficers.

                      Naw. Cops have a duty to care for those in their custody. Something like that is carelessness which I would think could be charged with negligence.

                        Yeah, according to ABC News - another major screw-up, but no malice intended.

                        Body camera footage released in late July showed that the deputy thought he had closed the door, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The 10-minute clip shows officers struggling to get Grier into the backseat of the police car, but does not show how she ended up falling out of the vehicle.


                        And...

                        The body camera footage showed one deputy approach Grier as she lies in the road after falling out of the vehicle while saying, "How is your back door open?" to the other deputy.

                          Unless the cops are hassling Trump, then they can do no wrong.

                            There must be a news source or service that gathers up these cases and presents them as cops purposely killing people because they're hateful or racist or whatever.

                            I actually was a subject of a lawsuit once because a fellow police officer put a prisoner in a jail cell without removing the prisoner's belt. The department (along with individual officers) was charged with negligent manslaughter. I was released during the deposition by the plaintiffs because I demonstrated that I had a long heart-to-heart discussion with the deceased prior to handing him over to the jailer, and we had become "best buds".

                              struggled to get her in but somehow forgot to close the door of the compartment they spent so much time struggling to get her into. Uh-huh
