NYPD officer Ian Wallace was hit by a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG in Times Square on Saturday night at around 11:45pm, with the driver fleeing the scene after causing a lot of commotion on the street.
The black C63 sedan can be seen doing burnouts in traffic prior to stopping right in front of the officer. Instead of pulling over, though, the driver accelerated and swerved, hitting and then sideswiping the 26-year old officer.
According to the NY Post, Wallace was taken to the hospital where he was treated for minor injuries to his back, arms, right leg and right hip.
After escaping from the intersection, the Mercedes blasted its way westbound on West 42nd Street, hitting multiple cars and, eventually, disappearing.
We guess that, in such a crowded place, someone might have seen the Merc’s number plates, but at the time of writing this article, the investigation was ongoing and no arrests had been made.
