(Scroll down for video) A mother in Michigan, is blaming the police for the death of her teenage son who drove an illegal motor bike and ran past a stop sign before being run over by a car.
14-year-old Trent Moses of Detroit, was spotted by police speeding on an illegal motor bike on residential streets.
Several police officers briefly chased after Moses, but they then decided to let him go. However, after a few seconds, the teen ran past a yield sign and a stop sign.
A car then ran over the teen, and he died in the hands of his mother. The teen’s mother, Lisa Moses, blamed the police for her son’s death, saying he was wrongly chased down residential streets.
According to the police investigation, Trent was driving at 45 miles per hour in a 25 mile per hour zone. Police briefly tried to stop Trent, but they abandoned the effort as the chase was deemed to be too dangerous.
Moments after police stopped the chase, the teen drove past a stop sign at Paul and Rosemont avenues. He slammed into a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix.
He suffered severe head injuries and died. The driver of the Pontiac, 26-year-old Cynthia Clark, was not injured.
No charges have been filed against Clark, as she was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol and was driving below the speed limit.
