Body cam footage shows train hit Colorado officer's car with suspect inside


Police in Colorado released a video showing a train collide with a police patrol vehicle containing a suspect that was parked on railroad tracks.

Police in Colorado released body cam footage showing the moment a train collided with a police patrol vehicle parked on railroad tracks. A suspect was detained in the vehicle at the time of the collision.

In the video, provided by FOX 31 Denver, two officers are seen detaining the driver of the vehicle believed to be involved in a road rage incident and placing her inside the patrol vehicle that was parked on the railroad tracks.

Moments later, a train can be heard and the two officers near the patrol vehicle can be seen fleeing the area.

The train then collides with the patrol car, heavily damaging it and severely injuring the woman who was handcuffed inside.

The incident took place the night of Sept. 16, when law enforcement officers were in pursuit of a suspect believed to be in a road rage incident involving a firearm in Fort Lupton.

Deputies from the Weld County Sheriff's Office were initially looking for the suspect's truck when a Platteville Police Department officer found it and pulled over the driver, 20-year-old Yareni Rios-Gonzalez of Greeley.

Rios-Gonzalez pulled over just past a set of railroad tracks and the Platteville police officer stopped directly behind her, parking on the tracks themselves.

Oh my god. We have the dumbest people possible in uniform. And their response, after they have nearly killed the suspect with a train? Search the car some more.

I would sue for Infinity dollars. Can’t wait to hear the arguments for Qualified Immunity. 

Cops like this whine about their safety all the time.

I don't think that's true in general, but for the love of Mike, the good cops need to rid their ranks of dumbasses like these and not try to defend them at all.

No explaining away their own stupidity or (often) cruelty by villainizing the suspect.  Yes, we all know that most people under arrest aren't angels.  We also all know that they're entitled to a trial.

We also know that the cops who pull crap like this often don't endanger only those they harm.  This could have killed an LEO.  Or someone on the train.

So all cops need to stop defending those among their own ranks who are a danger to themselves and society.
