Video of Officer Matthew’s fatal car crash

Video

Body

The video from the recently released dash cam of WPD Officer Richard Mathews’ patrol car shows how quickly things happened two weeks ago when his vehicle spun out of control.

This is real time video as Mathews sped up on Shipyard to assist fellow officers in a drug chase. The box he tried to avoid comes up very quickly. He pulled hard to the left to avoid it and ended up in the trees.

There is also video from an officer who was following shortly behind Matthews. She encounters the box and then turns left where she sees Officer Matthews’s car in the trees.

These tapes will be part of the case prosecutors are building against the suspects in the case. The WPD released them now in response to a lawsuit filed by the Star News.
