Off-duty NYPD Officer Severely Injured In Queens Crash

Home » News » Off-duty NYPD Officer Severely Injured In Queens Crash

A thirty-four-year-old NYPD officer who was off-duty was critically injured in a two-car accident that occurred in Queens, officials informed on Saturday.

The NYPD officer was driving a Nissan Altima on Nashville Boulevard in Springfield Gardens on Friday when his vehicle was hit by a Nissan Maxima. Two men were traveling in the Nissan.

The officer’s car then turned off and crashed into two parked cars and a telephone pole before it caught fire, the officials said.

The seven-year veteran of the NYPD, who is currently assigned to a Brooklyn precinct, was thrown from the vehicle upon the collision. The police found him lying unconscious in the street with severe injuries on his head and neck.

Two other men, a twenty-eight-year-old driver and a twenty-year-old passenger, were found in the Nissan; they only had minor injuries on their legs, officers said. 

Physicians transported all three injured people to Jamaica Hospital. The off-duty police officer was listed in a critical but stable condition. 

So far, no arrests were made, and the investigation continues.

After an accident, you will need immediate medical help. Even if you don’t have any injuries, seek medical help (you are still in shock after the crash, and you might not feel internal injuries).

If you are in conscious condition, call your attorney and make sure to tell them the entire truth about the accident you were in (how it happened, whether you drank, were you driving carefully, etc.).

A skilled lawyer will know how to continue to help you once they know the entire case.

Going through this process can be challenging, especially if you don’t know what the law requires.

Seeking compensation claims must be done as soon as possible due to statue limitations.
