VIDEO: NYPD Cruiser Rear-Ends Dirt Bike
A New York Police Department squad car pursuing two men on an illegal motorcycle accidentally rear-ended the dirt bike, killing one and injuring the second man. That man is now suing the department.
Video of the August crash was provided to Fox News by the attorney of Adalberto Gonzalez, who was charged with reckless endangerment, resisting arrest and reckless driving. Eddie Fernandez, who was driving the unlicensed motorcycle without a helmet, was killed in the crash.
Surveillance footage from the incident shows the cruiser striking the motorcycle.

I think both we're negligent the officer with excessive speed and perps attemping to flee which can make it a felony. In their attempt to flee they drove into the path of the responding officer. I beleive the perp that made it should be charged if the officer is charged or not. You play you pay!

If you saw the tape at the start the cruiser hits the guy in the white shirt at the corner Then he turns around to pursue them. The white shirt guy runs along the sidewalk, and jumps on the back of the motorcycle. The cruiser then hits, not rams, but hits them from behind pushing them 20-25 feet killing the motorbike driver. That contact had better be for a serious charge or warrent wants. If not that Officer just plain and simple screwed up, and is gonna have to pay the piper so to speak.
