Pyrénées-Atlantiques. 37-year-old woman killed by police during traffic stop


A woman was killed in the night from Sunday to Monday, in Bayonne, by a police fire after having struck “deliberately” a police car during a road check. An official was taken into police custody.

“Following an initial refusal to comply with the driver, whose car deliberately struck the police car whose two officials were outside, the lights were opened, the circumstances of which remain to be clarified” , said the prosecutor of the Republic of Bayonne, Jérôme Bourrier.

The 37-year-old woman died two hours later in hospital.

At around one in the morning, police spotted his car zigzagging on the road and attempted to control it. The driver then accelerated but the officials managed to catch up with her and block her.
When they dismounted, the woman accelerated again, hitting a policeman with an injured knee, while another used his weapon.

The Bayonne judicial police as well as the IGPN, the police force, were seized of the investigation.
