P1 Photo of the Week: Near-fatal cruiser crash

The story behind this photo: A 1:38 am pursuit began as an erratic driver and ended with a crash that was almost fatal. This officer was attempting to deploy Stop Sticks while the suspect vehicle was approaching. The vehicle lost control and slid sideways and hit the patrol car. The truck rolled over the car's hood, windshield, roof and trunk, coming to rest on its wheels behind the patrol car. All the while, the police officer was at the wheel of the patrol car. The officer had to be extricated through the driver's side window. Luckily, the officer walked away uninjured.

The suspect was jailed for Driving Under The Influence of Intoxicants (twice the legal limit), Reckless Driving, Recklessly Endangering Another Person, Criminal Mischief, Driving While Suspended, attempt to elude and Parole Violation. It turned out the suspect had been driving on a suspended license. His license had been suspended from a prior driving under the influence.
