Ozone Park, NY (March 10, 2019) – Police say that a driver is expected to face charges after a hit-and-run accident that led to injuries in two different people. Two officers were injured in the accident after their police cruiser was struck.
On Saturday afternoon, March 9th, a witness said that two vehicles collided in the intersection of 101st Avenue in the area of 94th Street. Both vehicles were then launched onto the sidewalk.
One vehicle struck a tree and just missed a couple of pedestrians on the side of the street. Two people inside a cab involved in the accident were hospitalized with injuries but are expected to be okay.
As first responders arrived at the accident, the other driver fled. He left the scene on foot but police were able to chase him down. The man was arrested in connection to the crash on 94th Street, as well as another that happened in the same neighborhood that involved police officers.
Two officers were taken to the hospital, one of which sustained serious injuries. At this time, charges pending against the hit-and-run driver are pending.
