PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia police officer is in critical but stable condition after an early-morning car accident yesterday in which each side blamed the other for the crash.
At 1:09 a.m., Officer Christopher Simone, a 12-year member of the force, was headed to Hahnemann University Hospital to assist security officers with a patient brandishing a box cutter when, police said, a car carrying three people slammed into his cruiser.
