VIDEO: Michigan Trooper's Dashcam Captures Deadly Head-On Crash

Michigan State Police say last Tuesday night, 29-year-old Jeremy Smeltzer was speeding the wrong way on US-131 near the I-94 interchange.

His truck crashed head-on into a car and Smeltzer and the driver of the other vehicle--21-year-old Jaryd Ford--were killed.

State Police went through the dash camera video Tuesday, and showed Newschannel 3 just how quickly everything happened.

Absolutely uncalled for. These situations show that all agencies should be equipped with & trained on a system that can/will electronically disable a vehicle. It could be done with any vehicle that contains a computer chipped system.

The rookie. Since you are probably a rookie you don't realize that the ACLU would go crazy at the mere idea of a chip in cars that will allow the police to deactivate a person's vehicle. But good luck anyway.

Actually there is something available exactly what [email protected] is asking about. It is called Low-Jack and while it is not in every car today it is in quite a few and it has been a round for over ten years. Also the same can be done by "OnStar" systems, they are just not in every car built but it is legal and completely probable. Police have already used these systems to shut off cars in real time pursuits.
