A morning crash in northwest Miami-Dade involving a Miami-Dade Police Department officer sent at least two people to an area hospital.
Miami-Dade Police confirmed the crash took place near the 5900 block of Northwest 30th Avenue when the patrol car collided with another vehicle.
The driver of the other car injured his right hand and the passenger complained of pain. Both were treated at the scene and later transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital.
A witness to the first crash, Melvin Fowlder says the officer was at fault, but this detail has not been confirmed by police.
“I heard a boom, came outside and this is the aftermath," said Fowlder. "From what I hear, the officer ran the stop sign.”
Witnesses say a man and a woman were inside the other car.
“There were no lights or sirens,” said Fowlder.
Fowlder says his car was hit too. Miami-Dade police say the driver sustained an injury to his hand.
NBC 6 spoke to the driver who says the officer didn’t stop at the sign, but that he did apologize and make sure help was on the way.
MDPD did not release any additional details on the crash.
