Baltimore Officer Dies of Injuries from November Pursuit Crash

Baltimore police officer Craig Chandler has died as a result of injuries sustained in a crash during a pursuit Nov. 23, the Police Department said Saturday evening.

"We will always remember Officer Craig Chandler #EOW [end of watch] 1/9/15 due to injuries in a LOD [line of duty] car accident. #BPDNeverForget," the Baltimore police tweeted Saturday evening.

Detective Ruganzu Howard told the Baltimore Sun that Chandler died Friday evening.

Chandler and a female officer were injured when the patrol car they were riding in struck a telephone pole while pursuing a moped that had picked up a man fleeing a gathering of dirt bike riders, police said at the time.

Police commanders had tried to call off the pursuit before the accident, which also left the moped driver, Deonta Winston, hospitalized. Police charged Winston, 22, with multiple traffic violations. Winston could not be reached late Saturday.

So, a bunch of dirt bikes,, doing what? Bikes leave, one man runs, hops on back of moped. Officers pursue, but find only driver on moped not runner. And then they run the moped down or try to pin moped between patrol car and telephone pole. ??? Is that a moped in the photo? Can you pin a moped between a car and pole unless the moped is not moving?

What is Winston charged with?

I don't get it. And why are there no more stories about this three months later?
