On July 3, 2014 State trooper Timothy Fagin was parked on the side of the road when he noticed that a driver was not wearing his seatbelt. This is when the officer decided to chase the car; he was in such a hurry that he did not feel the need to keep his siren on throughout the pursuit. he fleeing driver also ran a blinking red light and stop signs.

Officer Fagin’s first unsuspecting victim Jacqueline Nichols was on her way to a beauty salon for an appointment, when he crashed into her car -causing an accident which led to her death.

He also injured two other bystanders. The car he was following fled away. Apart from the casualties, Fagin was also in breach of the State Police’s chase guidelines.

The officer’s father was in the car with him at the time; according to the policy a ride-along is required to sign a liability waiver before the driver can start pursuing another vehicle. No such document was signed by Fagin’s ride-along.

The officer only received a 72-hour suspension, which is outrageous since someone passed away.
