VIDEO: Police Chase Ends When Stolen Car Crashes, Killing Pedestrian, Collapsing Building

Baltimore, MD – The Maryland Attorney General’s Office’s Independent Investigations Division released bodycam and pole camera videos from a Baltimore police chase in February that ended when the suspect struck a pedestrian and slammed into a building, causing it to collapse (video below).

The incident occurred on Feb. 8 after police tried to stop a stolen black Hyundai Sonata in the 1800-block of East North Avenue in East Baltimore, WBAL reported.

The suspect car refused to stop and fled at a high rate of speed, slamming into another vehicle at the intersection of North Wolfe Street and East Nort Avenue.

After impact, the two vehicles slammed into a pedestrian who was nearby, WBAL reported.

Then the cars struck a vacant rowhouse and the building collapsed on top of them, the police camera videos showed.

Police said the pedestrian, 54-year-old Alfred Pincher, was pronounced dead at the scene from his injuries, WBAL reported.

The driver of the stolen Hyundai was arrested at the scene, according to the Baltimore Police Department (BPD).

BPD said the attorney general’s Independent Investigations Division would continue to head up the investigation into the incident, WBAL reported.

Officials have not yet said whether any of the officers involved in the chase will face discipline for violating police department policy.

Baltimore Police Pursuit Policy prohibits pursuit of a stolen vehicle if that was the initial violation, WBFF reported.
