Family of Suspect in High Speed Chase Files Lawsuit

Family of Suspect in High Speed Chase Files Lawsuit

A high-speed chase that claimed the life of a man earlier this year is back in the news after the victim’s family filed a suit against the State of Arizona and the Town of Gilbert.

The incident occurred on January 24, when Brad Moore, in a stolen vehicle, led the Arizona Department of Public Safety Deputy Director Heston Silbert on a 90-mile-chase beginning in Gilbert and ending south of Camp Verde.

Silbert was off-duty and behind the wheel of his personal vehicle in Gilbert when he witnessed Moore commit a crime. He led DPS and Gilbert police officers on a pursuit, in which he continued to follow Moore’s vehicle and directed officers to ram the suspect’s truck. The chase came to a close south of Camp Verde when Moore’s truck flipped over a guardrail on Interstate 17 and plummeted 400 feet into a canyon, killing him.

Moore, a twenty-nine-year-old former Army paratrooper, was discharged for post-traumatic stress disorder in 2013. The attorney for Moore’s parents alleges the Phoenix Police Department’s helicopter told Silbert to terminate the pursuit and he refused, causing the crash. Moore’s parents are seeking $4 million in damages from DPS and $300,000 from the Town of Gilbert.
