Two Cops Injured

In Freeway Crash

By Joan Ward George

Two 100th Precinct Police Officers were injured Friday night, April 6, while responding to an emergency call at the Hammels Housing Development when their patrol car was hit broadside on Beach 88 Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard at 11:15 p.m.

Officers Steve Daniels and Tom Marroney were traveling east on Rockaway Freeway, with lights and siren blazing, when their patrol unit was struck by a car driven by a 20 year-old unidentified Rockawayite who was driving with an expired insurance card.

Daniels and Marroney were transported to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center where they remained hospitalized for two nights. Daniels injuries included a broken collarbone and bruised ribs; Marroney was treated for cracked ribs, a dislocated shoulder and a bruised kidney. Neither the driver nor his 16 year-old female passenger in the other vehicle reported injuries to police who responded to the scene.

With the exception of the insurance violation, the driver of the vehicle was not issued any summonses as a result of the motor vehicle accident. According to 100th Precinct Commanding Officer John Miller, the investigation is ongoing by officers of the 100th Precinct. Neither Daniels or Marroney are expected to return to their shift any time soon.
