Family of elderly woman killed in crash with Dallas police bait car sue city 11:29 PM Sat, Mar 06, 2010 The family of an elderly woman who was killed in 2008 when a convicted felon driving a Dallas police bait car struck her vehicle is suing the city, KXAS-TV (Channel 5 reports). Annie Tovar Reyes, 83, was struck at an Oak Cliff intersection in June 2008 by a car driven by Eddie Robert Ramirez, who remains in the Dallas County Jail on a murder charge. Ramirez, 30, had just been released from prison after serving three years for stealing another Dallas police bait car. After the crash, Dallas police suspended the department's bait car program, designed to catch car thieves in the act. A review of the incident found that equipment designed to allow the bait car to be remotely shut off was working properly. Miscommunication between police may have delayed the shut-off by a few seconds, but it's unclear whether that would have made any difference in the outcome. The crash occurred moments after Ramirez allegedly stole the car. Channel 5 reports that the City Council will decide Wednesday whether to authorize a $245,000 settlement in the case.
