INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -
A semitrailer slammed into the back of a stopped Indianapolis police squad
car on Interstate 465, with the officer suffering some injuries.
The crash happened
about 3:30 a.m. Monday on I-465 near its interchange with U.S. 31 on the
city’s south side.
City police Sgt.
David Kinsey tells Indianapolis television stations that the officer had
pulled over onto the highway’s center shoulder to check on a tire he thought
was going low. The semi then ran into the squad car, pushing it about 500
feet and coming to a stop atop its back end.
Kinsey says the
officer was taken to a hospital in stable condition with
non-life-threatening injuries. The semi driver wasn’t hurt.
