An alleged drunk driver fleeing from police caused a crash that left three cops injured, authorities said.
NYPD officers saw the motorist driving recklessly on Hunts Point Avenue near Bruckner Boulevard shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday, police said. When they tried to pull the car over, the driver fled and struck two vehicles, including a police car, authorities said.
The driver also nearly ran over a police officer writing a summons nearby, officials said.
The fleeing car eventually crashed on Bruckner Boulevard, where officers arrested the driver on a charge of driving while intoxicated, police said. The driver’s name was not immediately released.
Three officers were treated for injuries, including one who was struck by shattered glass, authorities said.
