ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Albuquerque Police Department is equipping some of its vehicles with emergency lights that rise about 4 feet above the unit's roof, warning drivers of freeway collisions.

Police Chief Ray Schultz said 10 service aide vehicles will be equipped with the Z-lift light bars, which cost about $4,000 each.

The Z-lift comes a little more than a week after a large truck struck a police vehicle, slamming the patrol car into Officer Jeff Abernathy as he cited a driver on I-40 near Sixth Street Northwest.
