Minneapolis police officer charged in July crash that killed Leneal Frazier

(KSTP) – A Minneapolis police officer has been charged in connection with a crash that killed 40-year-old Leneal Frazier this past summer.

Court records show Brian Cummings has been charged with second-degree manslaughter and criminal vehicular homicide after crashing his squad car into a vehicle, causing the death of Frazier.

Frazier was the uncle of Darnella Frazier, the teenager who recorded the viral video of George Floyd‘s death.

On July 6 at about 12:30 a.m., Cummings was pursuing the driver of a stolen vehicle in north Minneapolis when his marked squad car slammed into the driver’s side of Frazier’s Jeep, at nearly 80 miles per hour. Injuries Frazier sustained as a result of the crash were the cause of his death, the complaint states.
