Waterford Police Cruiser Struck By Red Light Runner


The Waterford police recently made public the dashcam footage of a rollover crash involving two vehicles that caused damage to a cruiser. The department released the footage in response to rumors suggesting that an officer had run a red light just prior to the incident.

Following the collision that took place on Wednesday morning at the intersection of Route 32 and Richards Grove Boulevard, both drivers involved were transported to a hospital to receive medical treatment for their injuries.

The video, spanning 36 seconds, clearly captures the moment when the traffic light turns green, prompting the police cruiser to initiate a left turn. However, before completing the maneuver, the vehicle is struck, causing it to tip over.

On Thursday morning, Waterford Police said they cited the other driver with failure to obey a traffic signal.
