UPDATED: Three Boynton Beach (Fla.) Police officers were admitted to Delray Medical Center, after their cruiser became impaled on a concrete pole while they were responding to a call.

On Wednesday, two of the officers — officers Rachel Loy and George Baldino — remained in stable condition. Officer Clayton Harris was released from the medical center on Tuesday.

The officers were responding to assist other officers on a burglary call involving three teenage suspects when their cruiser struck a concrete pole along North Seacrest Boulevard. Officer Loy was driving.

The police cruiser left the road and slammed into a concrete pole that pinned the officers inside. Rescue crews had to cut the wreck apart to pull the three free.

So very glad that the officers are okay. These guys put their lives on the line every day and, sadly, very few people understand this or give them the credit and praise they are of so worthy of.
