Judge: ATF Agent Not Negligent While Driving Through Red Light to Murder Scene

A federal judge ruled that an ATF agent was not negligent when he drove through a red light with his emergency lights on and collided with another car at a suburban Detroit intersection in 2010, The News-Herald reports.

Saying Agent William Temple “exercised due care” while driving to a murder scene, U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts said the driver of the other car, Lynae Neal, was more at fault for failing to yield to the unmarked law enforcement car.

Neal filed a lawsuit, claiming the agent was negligent, but acknowledged he heard a siren and still drove through the intersection.
