Dallas police officers were following a bait car when it crashed into another car driven by an 81 year old woman, killing her.Around 1:30 Monday afternoon, police say Annie Reyes was driving in Dallas when a thief crashed into her in the bait car he had stolen. She later died at a local hospital.Officers say this isn't the first time Eddie Ramirez has stolen a car. He's done it six times before, according to police, and evaded arrest three times.
Police didn't flip the kill switch in this case, and today Dallas Police Chief David Kunkle said he has suspended the department's bait car program.Kunkle said after Ramirez stole the car, the officers who were monitoring it lost sight of him for a moment. When they saw him that second time, Kunkle said, they had him in view for less than 30 seconds before he crashed into Reyes' car.
"Our policy, which we are reviewing, is we don't direct a bait car to be shut off unless officers see the vehicle, because we want to do that in an area and manner as safe as possible,"
