Fleeing Suspect's Vehicle Drags Utah Police Officer, Kills Driver

A man pulled over for a seatbelt violation fled the scene, dragging a Utah police officer with him before crashing head-on into a police vehicle, according to a recently released bodycam video from the Ogden Police Department.

The suspect, James Franklin, 23, died in the collision that took place in July, KUTV reported.

Franklin attempts to explain why the plates do not match the registration before the officer asks him to step out of the vehicle, according to the video.

About a block away from where the incident took place, Franklin’s car hit a curb and the Ogden police officer holding on to the car was thrown to the ground.

Franklin’s vehicle then hit another police cruiser head-on and died at the scene despite the officers’ attempts to render medical aid.
