CHARLOTTE — Police say a North Carolina officer whose cruiser collided with another vehicle and killed its driver was going more than 90 mph without lights or siren when the crash occurred.

The Charlotte Observer reported Tuesday that Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Rodney Monroe said his department will investigate the wreck.

Police said Officer Martray Proctor’s cruiser collided with a vehicle Sunday night at a north Charlotte intersection and killed 20-year-old Shatona Evette Robinson of Davidson. Four others, including the officer, were hurt.

State law requires police to obey speed limits unless their blue lights and siren are activated. The speed limit where the accident occurred is 45 mph.
