A reconstruction expert has determined that a state trooper accused of causing an auto accident steered his cruiser into the path of the fleeing suspect.
The auto accident occurred when the trooper was pursuing a suspect who was on foot and the cruiser struck the suspect.
The trooper involved in the auto accident was caught on the video taken from his cruiser bragging that he meant to strike the suspect.
The trooper is being charged in the auto accident with using unreasonable force and depriving a suspect of his civil rights.
Texas auto accidents become likely when suspects flee the scene of a crime and police chases must ensue.
