Police Car Crashes on Surf Avenue

Yesterday, an NYPD squad car racing to the scene of a crime crashed into a light pole at the intersection of Surf Ave. & 25th St., injuring the two cops inside. The New York Daily News provided details:

Both cops were listed in stable condition with mostly bruises and lacerations from broken glass, authorities said. The driver of the car was believed to have suffered some broken ribs.

Sources said the cops were racing to assist housing cops nearby who had radioed for help to control a melee on Mermaid Ave.

As they were whipping down Surf Ave. about 6:30 p.m., the officers swerved to avoid hitting another car, sending their own out-of-control vehicle into the air.
