An Indianapolis child was taken to the hospital after running into the side of an IMPD cruiser.

It happened in the 2400 block of Beckwith Drive Tuesday evening.

Officials said the officer was pulling into an apartment complex at a very slow speed when a child ran into the side of the car, hitting the front fender.

The child was reportedly running between parked cars prior to the accident.

Officials said the officer showed no sign of impairment and passed a portable breath test.

The child suffered non-life threatening injuries.

    It is amazing to me how your administrator can delete comments you don't wish to publish. Good job Fox 59.That is why I am an RTV6 fan.

  • I pay attention

    I almost "ran into the front of a cop car" two months back. The officer was not looking where he was driving and almost ran me over. I had to push my wife out of the way and jump to avoid being hit. The officer rolled down his window and told us to watch where we are walking. We were in a parking lot walking towards our car.

    IF POLICE PAID MORE ATTENTION TO THE ROAD AND NOT ON THEIR CELL PHONES,COMPUTER,OR ANYTHING ELSE THAT WAS DEVERTING THEIR ATTENTION FROM THE ROAD IN THE FIRST PLACE .THEN MAYBE THINGS LIKE THIS WOULD NOT HAPPING HE WOULD HAVE SEEN IT COMIMNG BEFORE IT HAPPINED BUT IF THE FAMILYSAYS OR TRIES ANY THING THEN IMPD WILL INSANTLY COVER UP ANYTHING BECAUSE OF FAULT OF THE OFFICER.SO WHAT HE WAS NOT DRINKING DOES THAT MEAN HE COULDNT HAVE HAD HIS PHONE OUT OR BEEN ON HIS COMPUTER????NO…..IT DOES NOT MAYBE YOU SHOULD BE ASKING THOSE QUESTIONS………………….
