07.01.09 Will Sherman

*Jun 30 - 00:05*An out of control NYPD cop was responding to an emergency but created another crisis on the LES yesterday. Witnesses say the cop was speeding without any lights or sirens when it crashed into an oncoming vehicle and passersby on the sidewalk at Avenue D and East 6th Street. Among the five pedestrians and other car passengers injured in the crash was a mother who had just snatched her baby out of harms ways, a 69-year-old street vendor who broke his ankle and was flung into the street, and a 33-year-old construction worker who suffered a broken leg. Fortunately no one died. |NYDN|
