Darnella Frazier, the teen who filmed George Floyd’s murder, reported that her uncle died in a car collision with police late Tuesday night (July 6). 

“I honestly can’t believe I’m making this post right now… I’m so hurt...nothing feels right now,” Frazier wrote in a post on Facebook

The teen said her uncle, Leneal Lamont Frazier, was killed after a Minneapolis police vehicle that was in pursuit of a suspected carjacker struck her uncle’s car. The 18-year-old said the police “took an innocent life trying to catch someone else.” Frazier also questioned why police would conduct a high speed chase on a residential road in the first place. Frazier posted a GoFundMe link for her family.

Minneapolis police released a statement saying that an officer was chasing the driver of a carjacked vehicle that had been involved with multiple robberies when the collision took place. The officer, the statement confirmed, was treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries and that the other driver, who they did not identify, died soon after arriving at the hospital. 

According to NBC News, the Minnesota State Patrol is to launch an investigation into the crash.
