    Any one got word how that happened? I guess the police was responding to a serious accident, or was it a high speed chase. Maybe the taxi driver stopped short to pick up a fare? Well who cares as long as they are both ok. hope it was not the same officer who rode off the opel.

    I hope it was the EXPENSIVE BMW police car that I have seen driving around! I still don’t understand the need to purchase that type of car; regardless if they were second hand or not! It’s unnecessary money being spent during the wrong time!
