    Preliminary findings show Freddie Gray suffered head injury in police transport van

    BREAKING NEWS: Preliminary findings show Freddie Gray suffered head injury in police transport van | WJLA.com

    BALTIMORE, Md. (WJLA) -- An investigation into the death of Baltimore resident Freddie Gray has found no evidence that his fatal injuries were caused during the videotaped arrest and interaction with police officers, according to multiple law enforcement sources.

    The sources spoke to ABC7 News after being briefed on the findings of a police report tuned over to prosecutors on Thursday as well as preliminary findings made by the medical examiner's office.
    Sources said the medical examiner found Gray's catastrophic injury was caused when he slammed into the back of the police transport van, apparently breaking his neck; a head injury he sustained matches a bolt in the back of the van.

    BALTIMORE — A prisoner sharing a police transport van with Freddie Gray told investigators that he could hear Gray “banging against the walls” of the vehicle and believed that he “was intentionally trying to injure himself,” according to a police document obtained by The Washington Post.

    Batts said another man who was in the van during the tail end of Gray's ride told investigators that Gray was "was still moving around, that he was kicking and making noises" up until the van arrived at the station. Batts said the man also said the driver did not speed, make sudden stops of "drive erratically."

    I'm a little confused. Wasn't his neck broken by the end of the ride when they arrived at the station? How was he kicking around with a fractured spine?

    Put the relevant information together.
    He was thrashing around in the back of the van which did not speed, make sudden stops or was driven erratically.
    He did this thrashing for the supposed five minutes the other arrestee was in the van.
    This thrashing stopped just before they arrived at their destination.
    That would indicate that he fatally injured himself at that point in time. Not from or during his resisting arrest.
    Which would indicate that it was not caused by the arresting Officers.

    And he wasn't wearing a seatbelt, a violation of rules. Also, there is evidence of a stop that was not reported by the transporting officers. Definitely bears further scrutiny.

    Where are you getting "just before they arrived at their destination" from. What you quoted never had anything about Gray suddenly stopping or ceasing at any point, it indicates that he continuously was banging around throughout the entirety of the time.
