Driver Caused Crash That Critically Injured One Police Officer
A Davie police sergeant was struck by a car while assisting in another crash on Interstate 95, Florida Highway Patrol reports.
A Florida Highway Patrol spokesperson told the Sun Sentinel that a police sergeant had stopped south of Royal Palm Boulevard in Broward County. As she walked along the paved shoulder of the southbound lane, she was struck by a passing car.
The Florida Highway Patrol spokesperson said the driver had swerved to avoid the patrol car and ended up on the shoulder where the sergeant was walking. The driver was cited for careless driving.
The earlier crash that the sergeant had stopped for involved a rollover. The driver of that vehicle was charged with driving under the influence.
The 37-year-old driver of the car which had struck the Davie police sergeant was still at the crash scene cooperating with Broward County police and the Florida Highway Patrol.
The details of the accident are still unclear, but it is believed the 37-year-old driver wasn’t under the influence of either alcohol or drugs.
However, Florida Highway Patrol is urging any eyewitnesses with additional information to contact them.
