GRAPHIC VIDEO: ‘I Think I Hit a Person’ – Cop Driving Twice the Limit With No Lights On Instantly Kills Pedestrian

video of an accident

The prosecutor’s office in Berrien County, Michigan, has released a highly dramatic dashcam video from a police cruiser that hit a female pedestrian crossing the street. The police car was speeding, and had neither lights nor siren activated, witnesses said.

“I need an emergency unit to my location. I think I hit a person,” Benton Township patrol officer Eugene Anderson informs radio dispatchers on the video just moments after the sound of smashing glass and a loud bang is heard as his police cruiser hits a woman.

Based on a squad car video, witness reports and a physical investigation of the scene, Anderson, who was responding to a domestic violence call, was traveling at 64 mph in a 35 mph zone when his car struck the woman, the Herald Palladium reported.

Kimberly Bedford, 48, who was crossing the road at 9 p.m. Sunday, died at the scene. The incident took place in September.

Anderson’s lawyer, Martin Kirk, called witnesses, who testified that Bedford was seriously drunk and was allegedly walking in the road with no regard for traffic. The lawyer argued that there was no reliable evidence proving that the patrol officer was traveling at 60 mph.

Berrien County Prosecutor Michael Sepic ruled that while Bedford did violate pedestrian rules by stepping into traffic, Anderson was still to blame.

“We’re not here to judge his whole person,” Sepic said, according to the Herald Palladium. “If an officer chooses to speed without lights and siren, then he has to accept responsibility for his actions.”

As for the defense claim that cops, when on a call, can be distracted by their oscillating lights and siren while driving, Sepic told the jury:

“If an officer is distracted by oscillating lights and a siren, I think he’d better find another job.”

Last week the former patrol officer was found guilty of causing the woman’s death. Anderson faces up to a year in jail, with a sentencing date yet to be set.

I totally agree with Michael Sepic’s words. His attitude should be an example for the rest of American prosecutors. Cops who contravene the law should not work in police. Eugene Anderson didn’t care about safety when he was speeding with the lights off. Cop who doesn’t respect the law and safety is a criminal and he should be punished as a criminal. I don’t like this trend of cops killing people everywhere.

Condolences to Kimberly Bedford’s family.

“She likes you.” You smiled.

“Are you sure you cannot see?” Loki raised a brow as he looked at you, causing you to snigger.

“Yes, I am positive. But every time you come into the room, I sense her becoming somewhat positively anxious to go greet you whenever she is permitted; and to say she is not next to me, I am going to assume she is nuzzling you for a scratch behind the ear.”

“She has done so already.” He admitted, you smiled smugly at being told that. “Why do you trust me so much?” Your smile turned to a frown. “Why do you not worry about being here with me, especially now that I am armed once more?”

Day 12: I Don’t Want To Close My Eyes - Aerosmith

They spend their 12th Valentine’s in the emergency room–a spot fell on stage and Blaine ended up with a shard of glass in his arm and a big bruise on his forehead.

It’s nothing too bad, and Kurt knows that Blaine will be back home the following morning.

But he can’t stand the idea of leaving Blaine in this big hospital bed.

In sickness and in health, he muses while rubbing his thumb over Blaine’s knuckles over and over again.

Blaine blinks, and he smiles at Kurt. “Happy Valentine’s, love,” he whispers.

“Not a romantic, my ass,” Kurt replies.

Imagine Loki pleading with Thor to allow him back to Asgard for only a moment to retrieve a spell book that would help him return your sight so you could see once more. When he disappears for a period of time you grow worried that he will not return, but when he does, he gives you the greatest gift you could have ever hoped for. Your sight.

“I will not say, do not weep, for not all tears are an evil.”

Tony and Bruce both shout your name, as you shuffle unsurely about the lab. At their sudden exclamation, you stop, turning in the direction of their voices. That was the thing, you couldn’t actually see them, or the fact that you had been walking towards a workbench with Bunsen burners that were aflame beneath flasks and glass tubing filled with boiling water. You had been blinded by an explosion at a HYDRA base just over a three years ago. Every day it became more and more apparent that now you were completely and utterly useless, you got in the way of everything, the team had started pitying you. It was infuriating.

“I got ‘em.” Stark declared, bursting into the common area, startling all those within it. Barton reached for his sidearm, Rogers jumped so badly he spilled coffee on himself, cursing as a result, Thor raised his arm to call for Mjölnir, and Beauty jumped to her feet, her teeth bared. “Okay, my bad.” Tony raised his hands as he stared at the snarling dog.

“Them who?” Rogers asked, wiping down the coffee stain on his t-shirt. “Who have you been keeping tabs on now?”

“Those who broke in her a few weeks back, looking for Loki.”

“You should have just left them take him.” Barton grumbled.

It all happened so quickly, but you felt as though the ninety seconds took three hours to take place, everything went in slow motion. You had been reading the sample reports you had just tested when you heard a shout go out and a small canister rolled into the lab you had been working in, hitting off your foot before an explosion of white light, then came the darkness.

There was gun fire and yells around you, but you could see nothing, turning helplessly you fell to the ground when a bullet struck your shoulder blade from behind. The pain was horrific, and fear took over as you heard people coming into the room, breaking different items as they went. You did not move again until silence was all that surrounded you.

PSA: We got hit by a drunk driver last night.

In the endless rounds of “our lives suck!”, Starke and I got hit by a drunk driver last night which totaled our vehicle. We’re both okay other than a few muscle aches and pains. It was a rear end. He blew out his tire and then accelerated into us. Fortunately because it was around 3am, we were the only ones on the road.

We might be a little slower with responses than usual.
