Maryland Police Tase Panicked Car Crash Victim, Victim Dies

(REASON)   There have got to be better ways to get a car crash victim who may have been high on PCP out of his car:

A man died while in the custody of Montgomery County police after he was subdued with a Taser, according to the department.

The 40-year-old man became combative as rescue teams were attempting to remove him from a car wreck on Route 29 near Briggs Chaney Road around 10:20 p.m., police said.

The car had run into a barrier separating the roadway’s north- and southbound lanes.

The rescue team requested police assistance, acccording to police. The officers attempted to remove the man from the car, but he continued to resist and they used a Taser on him, police said.

The man was transported to the hospital, where he died around 11:40 p.m., according to police. His name was not immediately released by police.

A vial of suspected liquid PCP was found in the car, police said.

Last month, Tim Cavanaugh reported on San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Deputies who punished an “uncooperative” motorist by Tasing him to death.
