POLICE SAY DEPARTMENT VEHICLE WAS BROAD-SIDED

Oct. 4, 2001 – A Police Department maintenance employee was hospitalized for injuries sustained when the Chevy Blazer police vehicle he was driving flipped over in a collision at the Golden Grove intersection Thursday, a department official said.
Cedric Knight "was trapped in the vehicle after it was broad-sided and flipped on its side" mid-morning Thursday, Deputy Chief Novelle Francis said. St. Croix Rescue personnel and paramedics from Emergency Medical Services used the Jaws of Life to extricate Knight from the vehicle, Francis said.
"Knight was hospitalized overnight for observation after he was transported to the Juan F. Luis Hospital by ambulance," he said.
Knight was struck by an oncoming vehicle as he was proceeding through the intersection, Francis said. The deputy chief declined to discuss further specifics of the case, which he said was under investigation by the Traffic Bureau. No information was available concerning the other vehicle involved in the collision.
