Lawsuit In Woman's Death During Trooper Chase

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, Mich. (AP) - A prominent Michigan plaintiff's lawyer says he's preparing a lawsuit after a state police car broadsided a car while chasing a suspect in Flint, killing a woman and critically injuring two others.

Attorney Geoffrey Fieger announced the suit Monday.

Fieger says in a statement that three people were returning from a salon Thursday when the state police car sped through an intersection and hit their car.

Fieger says the crash killed 64-year-old Jacqueline Nichols and severely injured 61-year-old Precious Cochrane and 39-year-old Robbie Head.

The Associated left a message for state police seeking comment Monday.

Earlier, state police told The Flint Journal the trooper tried to stop a car, but it ran a stop sign and the trooper gave chase. The trooper and a civilian passenger sustained non-life threatening injuries.
