Two injured after police car drives through crowd in Washington state

Two injured after police car drives through crowd in Washington state”

Video footage shows the crowd of people surrounding one police auto in particular, with the vehicle along with the windows being hit. "He was afraid they would break his glass", Haddow said.

First, a large fire truck attempted to block the intersection where five to six cars were spinning in circles, but the crowds of about three dozen were able to reform in a different area. One Tacoma police auto was then surrounded by the crowd and the officer inside struggled to remove himself. The department said initially that only one person was taken to a hospital.

The people proceed to crowd around one of the police SUV, kicking the vehicle and pounding the windows.

The incident has been turned over to the Pierce County Force Investigation Team, which will conduct an independent review, police said.

The vehicle meet had "approximately 100 people present blocking the intersection when officers arrived on scene", the Tacoma Police said in a press release.

The police SUV had several footprints imprinted on the side of the vehicle following the incident in Tacoma Washingon

"I am concerned that our department is experiencing another use of deadly force incident", Interim Police Chief Mike Ake said in the statement. Videos posted of the auto stunts in what appeared to be the same intersection showed similar tire marks in the road as those seen in videos posted of the Tacoma police vehicle. He sped out of the scene for his own safety, according to the Tacoma News Tribune.

The police had been called to the scene because the intersection of South 9th Street and Pacific Avenue was blocked by drivers performing doughnuts on the street, KIRO reported.

Tacoma police spokeswoman Wendy Haddow said that the officer, who is unidentified, reacted out of fear of the pedestrians surrounding his vehicles.

The police then indicated that "While trying to extricate himself from an unsafe position, the officer drove forward striking one individual and may have impacted others". Police initially did not say what the person's condition was.

"I send my thoughts to anyone who was injured in tonight's event, and am committed to our Department's full cooperating in the independent investigation and to assess the actions of the department's response during the incident".
