Cop Dragged by Suspect at 115 mph with Legs Hanging Out Door; Car Crashes

Uncategorized

America’s fine law enforcement officers never get enough credit for what they are subjected to on a daily basis as they try to keep others safe.

That was evidenced again Friday in Virginia when a state trooper was dragged by a driver speeding away from a traffic stop in Henrico County, according to WRIC-TV in Richmond.

The car reached speeds of 115 mph, authorities said.

Randi Stanley-Gibson, a witness who happened to be in the area at the time of the bizarre and scary incident, said she spotted the empty police vehicle and quickly noticed traffic slowing down as the speeding suspect was dragging the trooper down the road.

“We kept driving. It was all about 30 seconds later. The traffic just started slowing down. People were switching lanes,” Stanley-Gibson said, according to WRIC. “I told [my husband], I was like, ‘I believe someone’s trying to jump out of the vehicle,’ because I could see legs hanging out of…
