A drunk driver crashed into a police car that was parked outside the 71st Precinct on New York Avenue.
The crash occurred at around 3:45pm right in front of the 71st Precinct on New York Avenue and Empire Boulevard. A red Mazda sedan occupied by two Black males suddenly veered and crashed into a parked NYPD SUV.
Both occupants quickly exited the vehicle and appeared to be dazed.
Officers were on scene within seconds and immediately suspected that something was amiss. Both occupants said that the other was the driver and both were taken into custody on the suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
After an investigation it turned out that the vehicle was a rental and both occupants were indeed intoxicated and were both arrested.
