driver on John Young Parkway crashed into an Orlando Police Department cruiser Sunday night, then got out of the car and ran away, police said.
The driver ran a red light about 8 p.m. going south on John Young Parkway, at the intersection with Silver Star Road, Lt. Wanda Miglio said. The OPD officer was going west on Silver Star Road with the car’s lights and sirens on.
The officer was taken to a hospital with “some facial injuries,” Miglio said.
The other driver ran out of the car, but officers quickly found her, Miglio said. She was arrested on a previous warrant and taken to Orlando Police Department headquarters to speak with detectives.
Police did not immediately identify the driver or the officer involved.
