DEPTFORD, N.J. — A Deptford police officer seriously injured in a car crash Wednesday night emerged from surgery yesterday but remained in a medically-induced coma, authorities said.

Wurst's parents and dozens of fellow officers from the 80-member Deptford Police Department swarmed the hospital after the accident, awaiting word from doctors.
