Miami Officer Gets Surprise When Woman Jumps Into Car and Crashes Into Fellow Officer

Posted by: DFX on Jan 22, 2016

Auto AccidentPolice officers are trained to handle a variety of situations. One Miami officer may have found himself in a situation that even he couldn’t imagine when a woman jumped into his car and got into an accident. Consider a recent article for Local 10 titled “Police: Woman jumps into police car, crashes into another officer.”

Amanda Batchelor and Liane Morejon of Local 10 writes, “A police officer and a woman were injured in a crash Friday morning after the woman jumped into a police car, authorities said. The crash was reported in the area of Northwest 28th Avenue and Seventh Street at 10:47 a.m. Miami police Officer Frederica Burden said officers were dispatched to the area in reference to a woman who was running in traffic. Police said the woman was trying to jump off the roof of a home when they arrived. Burden said the woman jumped down, got into a police officer’s car and crashed into another police car that was coming for backup down the street. ‘I was on the sidewalk when I see the lady jumps into the police vehicle and the cop tried to drag her out, but by the time he tried she booked it, and the other cop was turning in and she just head on collided right into him,’ a postal carrier, identified as Chris, said. Burden said the woman tried to run off after the crash, but was taken into custody on Northwest 29th Avenue by the officer whose car she stole.”
