‘Officers’ Worst Nightmare': Girl, 1, Injured After Being Struck By A Boston Police Cruiser

Surveillance video shows the moment a police cruiser hit and ran over a 1-year-old girl in Boston.


After the vehicle hit her, the girl rolled in the street.

"I heard the screaming, and the mother was really upset, and my heart just stopped when I heard, 'My baby, my baby got hit,'" witness Joanne Dunlap told WHDH-TV.

The incident happened Monday night in the city's Roxbury neighborhood.

The name of the officer driving the police cruiser has not yet been released.

The girl suffered a broken collarbone, her mother told the news station.

“She’s doing OK,” the mother said. “Just asking for a speedy recovery, that’s all.”

In a statement, Boston police Commissioner William Gross said the incident is "any police officer's worst nightmare."

"Investigators continue to investigate this incident, although preliminary findings are leading to this being an accident," Gross said.
