2 Patrol Cars Struck By Alleged Drunk Driver in Palm Bay

Posted on November 27th, 2012 No Comments

On Monday night around 10 p.m., an alleged drunk driver in Florida crashed into two Palm Bay patrol vehicles. The accident unfolded on Babcock Street in Palm Bay, Florida. Two Palm Bay police officers were helping a person inside a disabled vehicle, and both of them had parked their marked patrol vehicles on the street, and left the hazard lights on in order to warn other drivers.

The vehicles were parked in the left-hand lane, so as to protect the disabled vehicle. An oncoming driver failed to slow down in that lane, and as a result crashed directly into one of the patrol vehicles. The impact of the collision caused the patrol unit to move forward, and strike the second patrol car in the lane. The 61-year-old driver that was responsible for the accident was allegedly under the influence of alcohol. The driver was injured in the accident, and was transported to Palm Bay Hospital to be treated for his injuries.

Fortunately, neither of the Palm Bay police officers were injured in the drunk driving accident. The individual inside the disabled vehicle was also not harmed in the collision. According to a spokesperson for the Palm Bay Police Department, one of the patrol units may have been totaled in the incident, and the other car only sustained minor damage. Charges are pending in the accident.
