Kansas City Police Department Employee Hit by Vehicle at DUI Checkpoint
Early last month, the Missouri Highway Patrol was conducting a sobriety checkpoint in Kansas City when one of the drivers tried to leave the line rather than be checked. He accelerated and swerved out of the line, hitting a KCPD mechanic. The driver also hit a police cruiser parked nearby.
The mechanic was knocked to the top of the car, but was unhurt. However, the driver began to speed up rather than slow down. Hanging onto the arm of a windshield wiper, the mechanic said he was looking eye to eye with the driver, even as he began to swerve to knock the mechanic off the car.
The vehicle hit speeds of 100mph as it was followed by patrol cars through the streets.
Eventually, the mechanic was thrown from the vehicle. His right knee was shattered when he was thrown.
Police found the vehicle abandoned nearby, but were able to track down the suspect because the vehicle was a rental.
