what we know about the death of two teenagers after refusing to comply - 1

A new tragedy has been added to the toll of young people killed during chases with the police. Two 17-year-old teenagers lost their lives in an accident after refusing to comply in Chelles (Seine-et-Marne), which occurred on Friday December 8. Hospitalized in serious condition, they succumbed to their injuries. The Meaux public prosecutor’s office has opened two investigations, one for refusal to comply and the other for homicide and involuntary injuries. Here is what we know about this affair.

A red light lit as a starting point

According to the Meaux public prosecutor’s office, a red light lit on Friday evening around 11 p.m. in the neighboring department of Seine-Saint-Denis was the starting point of the tragedy. A crew from the anti-crime brigade (BAC) of Neuilly-sur-Marne then tried to control the scooter, according to the same source, but the two-wheeler refused to stop and continued on its way for two kilometers.

The police headquarters, for its part, stressed to AFP that “in accordance with the instructions” of the police prefect, Laurent Nunez, “the police informed the command room of the vehicle’s refusal to comply” and that they engaged his ” supported “. The BAC agents used their “sound and light warning devices” to stop the scooter, the prosecution said.

No collision with the police car, according to the first elements of the investigation

Arrived in Chelles, “the driver tries to brake, but in my opinion too late”the Meaux prosecutor detailed to the press on Sunday, Jean-Baptiste Bladier, specifying that the two-wheeler was driving “at very high speed” on “a very wet road”.

In the images filmed by a police officer’s body-worn camera, “we literally see the vehicle sliding under the feet of its occupants. Afterwards, it goes extremely quickly”added the magistrate. “The bodies will slide and get stuck under a vehicle” who was stopped at a red light.

The fall of the two-wheeler was probably not the result of a collision with the police car which was pursuing him, according to the first results of the investigations communicated by the prosecutor. Jean-Baptiste Bladier reported that investigators received Sunday “the spontaneous testimony of two separate motorists”WHO “certified that they did not observe any material contact between the BAC vehicle and the scooter”. “More precise technical operations” It will be necessary to confirm or not this first result, said the magistrate.

The driver and his passenger hospitalized for multiple traumas

The prosecutor said the police arrived ” help “ to the victims immediately after the accident and that the firefighters and the Samu were mobilized ” very quickly “.

The two young people, living not far from there, in Vaires-sur-Marne (Seine-et-Marne), were hospitalized for multiple trauma and in cardiorespiratory arrest late Friday evening. The passenger died Saturday morning. The driver of the two-wheeler, whose vital prognosis was in jeopardy, died on Sunday afternoon, the Meaux public prosecutor’s office announced in a press release.

“No one deserves to die for refusing to comply. »reacted the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, in an interview with the media Brut on Sunday, before the announcement of the second death.

Two open investigations, including one entrusted to the IGPN

The Meaux public prosecutor’s office has opened two investigations. The first, for refusing to comply, was entrusted to the Chelles police station. The second, charges of homicide and involuntary injuries, is carried out by the Parisian delegation of the General Inspectorate of the National Police (IGPN), the “police police”.

According to the prosecution, the scooter driver was “unknown to the police” but I didn’t have a driving license. The passenger was known to the police for theft and drug use.

This drama is added to the numerous recent cases of young people dying in recent months in France during chases with the police. In June, the death of Nahel, 17, shot and killed by police officers during a road check in Nanterre (Hauts-de-Seine), triggered several nights of very high intensity urban violence in the country.

Since Friday evening, the police forces of Seine-et-Marne have set up a ” secure “ in Vaires. No incidents were observed in the area, but particular vigilance was maintained there overnight from Sunday to Monday.
