A Baltimore City jury decided, despite a local Order requiring police on a call to fully stop before proceeding through a red signal light, that the officer was not responsible in this instance. The police officer had her lights and siren activated en route on an emergency call, and when she went into an intersection a collision occurred with another driver. Despite testimony from witnesses, the officer did not make a complete stop. So justice may not have prevailed here, but this verdict seems to be consistent with claims against police on emergency runs.
