WILLIAMSBURG — Three people were injured when a car T-boned an NYPD squad car that was running a red light with its lights and sirens going, police said.
Two officers were driving southbound on Graham Avenue on a call for help and went through the intersection at Maujer Street about 4:30 p.m. when a westbound Nissan sedan slammed into driver-side door, according to Captain William Gardner of the 90th Precinct.
Nissan had the light, but the police had their lights and siren on, officials said.
"He should have stopped for an emergency vehicle," Gardner said.
"People said he was flying," the captain added.
The other driver and two officers in the car all had to be cut out of their respective vehicles with the jaws of life, officials said.
Emergency responders wrapped neck braces around the two officers, who were both grimacing with pain, and put them into stretchers and taken to the hospital.
The driver was also taken to the hospital, officials said.
No one's condition was immediately clear.
Gardner said the driver who hit the officers likely won't be charged.
