Family: Cop Hit Teen with Police Cruiser, then Fled

The AP via YellowBrix

December 14, 2009

WASHINGTON – The family of a teenager from Northeast Washington says the teen was hit by a police cruiser and the officer then left the scene.

Dominic Turner’s family says the 18-year-old suffered broken ribs, internal bleeding and a back injury when he was hit Saturday night.

Franklin Wade says he said he saw men running from police and heard a thud. Then he heard Turner groaning.

Wade says an officer picked Turner up by the shoulders and said something to him. He says the officer then dropped Turner to the ground and left.

It was unclear why police were chasing Turner.

Police confirmed Sunday that a 5th District cruiser struck a man Saturday night. A spokesman said the department would investigate.

    I have a very hard time believing this story. But then again, there goes the media trying to make the police look as bad as possible.
