Head-On Collision Injures Fort Worth Officer

FORT WORTH, TX – A Fort Worth police officer was critically injured early Saturday when a suspect in a fatal kidnapping drove the wrong way on U.S. Highway 287 and rammed the officer’s squad car head-on, police said.

The officer and the suspect were taken to a Fort Worth hospital in critical condition. The officer, whose name had not been released, was in serious condition late Saturday.

Police believe the suspect, 42-year-old Stanley Robertson of College Station, kidnapped his ex-girlfriend’s mother from a Walmart in College Station, Texas, on Friday, killed her and dumped her body behind a store on Camp Bowie Boulevard in Fort Worth.

The body of Annie Toliver, 59, was found about 5 a.m., several hours after the fiery crash in which the officer and Robertson were injured, police said.

Robertson, who also remained hospitalized late Saturday, has been charged with aggravated kidnapping. Sgt. Pedro Criado, a Fort Worth police spokesman, said Robertson also could be charged with capital murder.

Fort Worth police were on the lookout for Robertson after having been alerted that he was headed toward North Texas following Friday afternoon’s kidnapping. Officers spotted his vehicle about 1:40 a.m. on West Lancaster Avenue and began following him, Criado said.

Robertson was fleeing on Highway 287 in East Fort Worth when he made a U-turn on the freeway near Rosedale Street, Criado said. Officers in a police helicopter warned police on the ground that Robertson was driving northbound in the southbound lanes.

One of the officers pulled over to the shoulder to avoid Robertson, but the suspect drove his vehicle head-on into the officer’s car, Criado said.

The cruiser burst into flames. Rescuers were able to pull the officer from the wreckage, Criado said.

About two hours after the crash, officers in the department helicopter found Toliver’s body behind a building in the 4000 block of Camp Bowie Boulevard, not far from where the pursuit began, Criado said. It appeared she had been stabbed. It was unclear how long she had been dead.

“Investigators confirmed that the deceased female is the kidnap victim who was reported to be with the suspect,” Criado said.
