Officer injured after woman driving SUV broadsides squad car
Officer Nick Krupa was running with his lights and sirens on when he came to the intersection of Cartwright and Meadow Creek. An SUV broadsided his cruiser, which then flipped and hit a vehicle in oncoming traffic.
The patrol car ended up on its roof, but Officer Krupa walked away from the crash. His fellow officers credit a seat belt with protecting Krupa.
