Police van driver goes on trial in Baltimore death
BALTIMORE — A police van driver will be the second Baltimore officer to go on trial in the death of a black man who suffered fatal injuries during the trip from the site of his arrest to a police station. Caesar Goodson was with Freddie Gray for every second of his 45-minute trip to the Western District police station, where Gray arrived critically injured and unresponsive. But Goodson’s account of what happened on that day remains a mystery: He is the only one of six officers charged in Gray’s death not to speak to investigators. His trial, which begins today, will offer the public its first chance to hear Goodson’s side of the story.
