Driver Fleeing NYPD Decapitated in Crash with Truck

June 30, 2016  | 

A driver was decapitated while trying to flee NYPD officers in Brooklyn — when his car slammed into the back of a flatbed truck Tuesday, sources said.

The gruesome wreck happened when police tried to pull over a black Infiniti G35 sedan on the Gowanus Expressway near Hamilton Avenue around noon, the New York Post reports.

When they tried to exit the highway via the ramp at Atlantic Avenue near Hicks Street, the car collided with the back of the truck, shearing off the top of the driver’s head.

“When he exited here, he was driving 70 to 80 miles per hour, and the trailer was waiting for the light,” said Joseph Vega, 59, who was riding his bike to work at the time.

This story has the wrong title, these were not NY State Troopers involved, it was NYPD Highway Patrol officers involved

Well, they use the terms "undercover" instead of "plainclothes", "robber" for "burglar", "assault" for "battery", and "Officer" for any law enforcement rank like Corporal, Sergeant, etc.
If "journalists" (probably an incorrect term itself when talking about today's media) were writing to the standards of a rookie cop's report-writing, they might end up actually getting facts right. Almost any cop in America can relate a story better than these well paid, "useful" idiots.

point taken Tom Conlin. Most of what they write about, they know absolutely nothing about. This is understandable since they are not cops, but thats what research and getting all the facts are for, get the story write the first time.
