Brooklyn, NY (December 16, 2018) – A man broke both of his legs in a car accident involving a law enforcement officer. The police car swerved to avoid another person and struck the man.
At the time, two officers were responding to reports of a gunman at a subway station in the area. They were turning into Jerome Street from New Lots Avenue when they struck the 32-year-old man whose name has not been released.
Suddenly, a child appeared in the road and police swerved to avoid them, which caused them to strike the man. He was rushed to the Brookdale Hospital with two broken legs but is expected to survive.
The two police officers also received a variety of injuries and were taken to the hospital for treatment. The report of a gunman in the subway was unfounded.
Police continue to investigate the accident.
