BALTIMORE (WBFF) — The Independent Investigations Division (IID) of the Maryland Office of the Attorney General released the body-worn and CitiWatch camera footage from the fatal crash following an attempted traffic stop on February 8 in East Baltimore.
Five people were injured when the two cars crashed into each other and then into a house on the corner of East North Avenue and North Wolfe Street. 54-year-old Alfred Fincher of Baltimore, a pedestrian, died in the crash.
The Independent Investigations Division continues to investigate the circumstances of the fatal crash.
Baltimore police say the car they were chasing was a stolen vehicle.
Pinkelton says the pursuit likely should not have been initiated.
“If it’s for a traffic infraction, a property crime in general, that should not even turn into a pursuit,” said Pinkelton.
According to Baltimore police pursuit policy, the pursuit of a stolen vehicle is prohibited, if that is the initial violation.
