Posted on Sunday, June 7th, 2020
ST. LOUIS, MO – Four St. Louis Police Department officers were injured when they were hit by a car late Friday night.
The accident occurred around 11 p.m. near the intersection of 20th Street and Cass Avenue when the police officers were hit by a vehicle while trying to pull over the driver of a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro, reports KDSK.
The Camaro attempted to accelerate away from the officers when they turned on the lights in their patrol cruiser.
The officers used a tire deflation tool to try to stop the Camaro, but the driver still attempted to escape despite a deflated tire.
The Camaro caused the driver of a 2019 GMC Denali to crash into the police vehicle. The driver of the Denali experienced non-life-threatening injuries but did not go to the hospital.
The four police officers were sent to the hospital as a result of the crash, but they have been released as of writing.
Authorities later found the abandoned Camaro at the 2300 block of Herbert Street.
