Police chases questioned in Genesee County following fatal crashes

FLINT (WKZO) -- Two fatal police chase crashes in the past month in Genesee County have people questioning the practice. According to the "Flint Journal," Michigan State Police have not released many details about the chases or accidents other than to say both suspects were trying to outrun officers after being flagged for a traffic violation.

Fueling the community outrage is data from the Office of Highway Safety Planning that shows just two deaths from 2005 to 2013 from police chases in Flint. With over two dozen police agencies in the county, there is no policy on chasing suspects that pertains to all officers.
