A Salem (Mass.) PD officer is expected to fully recover from injuries he sustained when the driver of a vehicle accellerated after he reached into the passenger's window to take an ID, the Union Leader reports.
Salem PD's Dave Hyatt stopped a vehicle, after the driver and passenger yelled obscenities about his traffic direction. While taking an ID from a female passenger, driver William Manning accelerated, catching the officer's arm and dragging him several yards before he fell to the ground.
The officer is expected to fully recover.
