Now here in Colorado I have observed patrol cars slowing down, then proceeding with caution at a intersection. I don't know what they was chasing the motorcycle for, but to me this is a very senseless death.http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?...tnerId=rss_mlb
ATLANTA -- Bobby Cox, Fredi Gonzalez and Brian McCann were among the members of the Braves organization who rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital on Saturday evening to be with the organization's head trainer Jeff Porter as he dealt with the tragic death of his wife.
Porter's wife, Kathy Porter, died late Saturday afternoon after the family's sports utility vehicle collided with a Georgia State Patrol cruiser less than a mile north of Turner Field.
Porter was driving through the intersection of Capitol Avenue and Memorial Drive when the police cruiser slammed into his Ford Expedition. Kathy Porter, 54, suffered fatal injuries while her husband and 19-year-old son David were treated and released from Grady Memorial Hospital Saturday night with non-critical injuries.
The unidentified state police officer was attempting to assist other police officers with a high-speed chase involving a motorcycle on nearby Interstate 20. According to the GSP report, the trooper was traveling westbound on Memorial Drive with lights and siren activated.
