Judge Rejects Immunity for Former Officer in Fatal Car Crash | Virginia wrongful death lawyer

Fairfax, Va., Judge Rejects Immunity for Former Officer in Fatal Car Crash .

The Washington Post reports that an officer that hit and killed another driver last year was denied immunity by a judge yesterday after a bunch of new facts emerged during a hearing last Tuesday.

The accident happened on Route 1 in Fairfax County. Ashley McIntosh was driving her Toyota Corolla when she entered an intersection on a green light and was thrown from her car and killed after being hit by Officer Amanda Perry.

Perry was not using her lights or siren which is not allowed when responding to a call, especially when running a red light.

Hopefully McIntosh’s family will get some degree of justice in their wrongful death car accident case now that a judge has rejected the sovereign immunity defense.
