Black Georgia Woman Passes Away After Falling Out Of Police Patrol Car

A woman from Georgia died after falling from a police van while being apprehended. Brianna Marie Grier, 28, was arrested on July 15 after Hancock County sheriff’s officers got a call from her Sparta, Georgia, residence, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI).

“Grier was arrested at his residence,” the GBI added. “While being transported to the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office by deputies, Grier fell out of a patrol cruiser and incurred serious injuries.”

Grier was transferred to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment, but she died on July 21, nearly a week later. “On July 15, following the original incident, Hancock County Sheriff Terrell Primus asked the GBI’s regional investigation office in Milledgeville to investigate,” the bureau claimed.

It is unclear why Grier was detained, although her family previously told WMAZ that she had a schizophrenia episode between Thursday, July 14, and Friday, July 15. As a result, her mother requested assistance.

Deputies arrived at the home between 12 and 1 a.m. and handcuffed Grier before transporting her to the rear of their police vehicle.

Later, Hancock County Sheriff Terrell Primus visited Grier’s parents, Mary and Marvin Grier, and informed them that Grier had been taken to the hospital with a head injury. Grier had kicked one of the automobile doors open, according to Primus. According to WMAZ, she sustained two skull fractures, which put her in a coma.

Grier’s mother is skeptical of the sheriff’s statement. “They had to let her out of the automobile if she got out of it.” “That’s my understanding since you can’t open the door from the inside of a police car, so it has to be opened from the outside,” Mary Grier explained.

An autopsy will be performed, according to officials, as the GBI conducts its probe.
