The driver is the one who was speeding. The police was doing his job. If you don't want to die then do speed & don't try & out run the Police. Are they suppose to let the criminals go?
The Speed l;imit was 45 he was going 65 when the Policeman turned on his lights he speeded up to 80. So it was the drivers fault not the Policemans.
Obey the laws & they won't have to chase you.
Sorry for your loss.

The police were certainly doing what they are supposed to do. Are they just supposed to allow people to go any speed they so desire? What good are laws then?
I think the driver should be charged with voluntary manslaughter. That was a deliberate act that resulted in death and he should pay for it.

Ok, being in law enforcement I still wonder about the deaths that occure like this. The deputy says just 20 seconds after he turned on the emergency equipment the car crashed. The accident happened at night according to the report. "DARK" I have to guess that the deputy was somewhat new and wanted to stop that car no matter what. Morning breifing,"CAPT" I stopped a speeder last night. Well kind of, he hit a pole and a passenger died, 20 seconds after I started my pursuit. I am sorry for the families of everyone, I am sorry for the deputy who will now live with this the rest of his life. I want to use a curse word here but its not right to do so. It did not HAVE to end that way.

You cannot blame the police for this. It may be your life or one of my loved ones life they are saving by keeping dumb drivers from killing people. Sorry the passenger died, it should have been the driver instead paying the ultimate price for his stupidity! 65 in a 45 is an invitation to a ticket!

Yes, the police have to be careful in a pursuit. The "fire" boy incident on I95 at 5pm-5:30pm traffic was outrageous, and could have resulted in any number of fatalities to other innocent drivers and those 3 children. However, they do have right to pursue, using caution, circumstances, and this seemed to be proper. The only one at fault here is that driver. When you are caught speeding, lights come on, you stop. DUH!! What else is missing here? drugs, alcohol, suspended license? He ran from more than a speeding ticket, I would think. And the Louisa Com. Attorney certainly should pursue some type of manslaughter charge. If someone in another vehicle had been killed in pursuit, I'm sure they would upgrade the charges.

If the police were not allowed to pursue criminals would never be caught.

Smart. Why not blame the idiot driver, not the police? Don't the laws apply to him or you?

Your an idiot! Next time someone robs you or you have an accident the police are going to be there to help YOU! Bet your attitude changes then! Why not place the responsibility where it belongs...on the driver!

Charles had a lincense, insurence, new car. everything was going good for him until this. I have no idea why he ran or if he ran at all. he had worked very hard to get his life in order and get back his permit so he could get around and be a normal person. i dont defend him running, and it is so very easy to go 65 on a backroad, Jason is my cousin, me charles and jason grew up together. I met Jay three years ago and weve been close ever since, he is one of the nicest people ive ever met. To Hades with the ney sayers, it could be your kid next so watch your Karma.

What a tragedy but what's more frightening is that people like Haily Dunn are out there blasting the police.

Hailey, I don't know if you have children or not, but would you want someone going 65 miles per hour in front of your house while your children were playing outside. The possibilities are endless what could have happened to inoccent by standers. The police have every right to pursue people who break the laws. They are trying to keep good law abiding citizens and children safe. You must have known the poor person who had his life taken that night and I am very sorry for your loss, but the police are not to blame here.

You do not paint a good picture of Charles. Why did he have to work hard to get his permit back? His decision to run was his screw up, as was driving 80 mph on a back road. Maybe he should not have gotten his permit back. His choice to run cost another his life.

Let's hope nobody elses kid drives like this.

Jason Rhoten is my brother-in-law, and Chuck was a good friend of my husband's. Chuck is a really great guy, and the hardest worker I know. He made a poor decision last night and will be paying for it for the rest of his life. My heart goes out to Jay's family and friends. I hope this serves as a "wake up call" to my brother-in-law, who has a five year old son at home. He could have been the one in that front passenger seat. Hailey is hurting right now, and I am sorry for the loss of his good friend, but cops are here for our protection. They are lucky that they did not hit another driver, or this could've been way worse!

Charles struggled to live bro, he has a daughter that he supports with every cent he can scrape up from work and odd jobs. This was just a bad decision gone horribly wrong.

Hailey by far you are stupid for saying things like that why would you say fuck the police for their job I lost a friend because he decided to speed and allude the police what is wrong with you its obvious that you have been on the wrong side of the law and see things one-sided think before you decided to open your mouth about people who are there to protect and serve so kids can grow up without having to worry about being killed from crossing a street or something else

Everyone settle down. Numerouse police departments have policies (or should) about what and where to pursue a suspect in a high speed chase. Most of these policies require some knowledge that the driver or a passenger in the car is suspected of commiting a serious crime. Speeding is not a serious crime. These policies save lives by preventing the police from chasing drivers at high speeds, causing crashes into innocent people, simply because a tail light is burnt out.

Having said that, if the 20 second timeline quoted by the officer is accurate, there was no time to break off this high speed chase as it had not even really started.
