Run the tag number ... duh
Are you really that clueless? A tag number gives information about the Registered Owner, not the driver. Unless of course you think that anytime anyone drives a car, the car automatically takes a DNA sample through the hands on the steering wheel and transmits that information to the tag so that the Police will know who is driving.

How foolish you are.

Why did the boyfriend tell her to come back to his house instead of pulling over? There have been several past incidents of people pretending to be a cop and once they get you pulled they rob you. She had been told by family to never pull over for a cop at dark unless you are in a well lit area.
They were EIGHT crusiers following her. Right? lol And she was going how fast? How many places did she pass?
You always pull over for cops. If you honestly feel threaten then this is what you do. Roll up the windows and lock the doors. CALL THE POLICE. The dispatcher will know where all officers are at all times. They will know if thats a real cop or not.
If she had made it safely back to his house would be talking about an officer being shot or one of the kids? I don't understand what you are asking?
I am basically saying. If she was heading home there was no reason for her to turn around and go back to her boyfriends. I was just suggesting a worse case type thing.
Say she safely goes back to her boyfriends house. What do you think shes gonna do? Jump out of the truck and run into her boyfriends house. OR He will be waiting for her and she runs to him.
In either case the police would order her to stop and drop to the ground and if she did not she would of been shot or tased or something.
If they decide not to shoot they may very well try to tackle her or send a K-9 Unit after her at which case the boyfriend or the boyfriends family could get involve which could lead to more harm on everyone.
This was a terrible, terrible, tragedy. She was not trying to run from the law. She was on her way home that night because her mother had called her and told her she had made her a chocolate cake because it was her favorite.
But...she was running from the law and she was young. Dont call your boyfriend. Call your parents.

dumb, dumb, dumb....another one bites the dust.

I don't mind at all when idiots remove themselves from the gene pool.
And I don't care what grades she made in school or any other flowery crap about what a good kid she supposedly was. She died while commiting a felony. She died a criminal.

The reason I brought up that she was a straight a student was to help show that we aren't dealing with a delinquent child, typically students that do well in school aren't trouble makers which is true in this case. She should have been smart enough to not be speeding the way she was and if she were alive her mother would have grounded her for life for making such a careless move, unfortunately she will not get the chance. I will try and answer your question to the best of my knowledge, but keep in mind all my knowledge is coming from what the family has told me.
Why did she drive such a large truck? LOL...you must not be from West Lincoln. She was a bit of a redneck.

She had been told by family to never pull over for a cop at dark unless you are in a well lit area. Why in the world she decided to speed to get back to her boyfriends..who knows...she was eighteen...who ever knows why they do what they do.
What was he going to do when she got back to his house? she was going to pull over. She felt that was a safe place to pull over.
If she had made it safely back to his house would be talking about an officer being shot or one of the kids? I don't understand what you are asking?

So reckless endangerment and evading the police can be justified with chocolate cake? Wow, who knew....
