Boston Cop Struck By Car During Foot Chase, Hospitalized

A Boston police officer is in the hospital after being hit by a car during a foot chase Wednesday morning.

Boston Police Department officials said the injured officer call came in at 10:37 a.m., where an unidentified officer had been hit on Washington Street in Jamaica Plain.

Police said the officer was involved in a foot chase at the time of the accident. Officials said the officer had attempted to arrest a suspect — identified as 39-year-old Wilfredo Burgos of Roxbury — for active warrants.

Burgos allegedly violently pulled away from the officer and fled. The two ran across Washington Street and passed behind a large truck where they were then struck by an oncoming car that was traveling from Columbus Avenue toward School Street.

The officer’s injuries are serious but non-life-threatening and he was taken to the hospital. Police said the extent of his injuries is unknown. Burgos also suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital where he will remain until he is able to be booked.

Burgos was arrested on charges of resisting arrest and assault and battery on a police officer. The driver of the vehicle wasn’t given a citation.
