Springfield Republican (Mass.)
SPRINGFIELD - Police officer David M. Askins is well-acquainted with the danger of police work.
In 2005, a fleeing drug suspect plowed into Askins' cruiser during police pursuit. Askins was not injured, unlike the time in 2003 when his cruiser was struck by a drunken driver on Worthington Street. He and his partner were treated for head, back, shoulder and neck injuries.
