Stolen SUV chase ends with crash, injured Yonkers police sergeant
A Yonkers police sergeant was seriously injured overnight after two suspects crashed their stolen SUV into his police vehicle.
Authorities say an unmarked Yonkers patrol unit was in the area of Central Avenue in response to recent commercial burglaries when they saw a stolen white SUV loitering in the area around 2 a.m.
The officer tried to pull the SUV over, but the suspects sped onto the New York State Thruway before crashing into a marked Yonkers police vehicle.
The suspects ran off onto the service road.
The police sergeant inside had to be extricated and was taken to a hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.
