Darnell Frazier, who recorded George Floyd's in-custody death last May in Minneapolis, now says her uncle was the uninvolved driver who was killed in a pursuit crash Tuesday.
Police said that shortly after midnight Tuesday, an officer spotted a vehicle near Sixth Street and Lowry Avenue North, believed to be connected in multiple business robberies. The driver fled after the officer attempted a traffic stop and the officer pursued.
Police spokesperson John Elder said that about 12 blocks away, the pursuing officer crashed into an uninvolved westbound vehicle at an intersection, MPR reports.
The driver of that car, who Frazier identified as her uncle, was taken to North Memorial Health Hospital, where he died shortly after arriving.
The Minnesota State Patrol is investigating the crash.
