Teen with machete hit by NYPD van in the Bronx, police say

Cops accidentally struck a machete-wielding teen with a marked NYPD van while chasing him through The Bronx and fractured his pelvis Monday night, officials said.

Police first spotted a group of people fighting in the area and attempted to break it up when Rivera, holding machete, fled, according to police.

Two officers saw the 17-year-old engaged in a physical fight with one other person on the corner of East Kingsbridge Road and Grand Concourse in Fordham Manor shortly before 11 p.m., police said.

The teen bolted, running south on one of the concrete islands in the multilane street, cops said. They say the officer driving the van tried to stop his vehicle in time, but ultimately hit the teen.

Medics rushed Rivera to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition Tuesday.

The teen, who lives just a few blocks from the scene, was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and disorderly conduct and was given a desk appearance ticket, police said.

It was not immediately disclosed if the cop driving the van will face disciplinary action.
