Posted by: Joanne Holcomb on October 22, 2022

Queens, NY (October 22, 2022) – The driver of a stolen BMW slammed into two NYPD vehicles injuring four police officers on Thursday, October 20th in Queens, just one day after he was arrested for another car theft. 

The 20-year-old man was released without bail for the first offense on Wednesday, October 19th. Before his paperwork had even been filed he was caught behind the wheel of another stolen vehicle at about 9:30 p.m.  

He was driving through St. Albans with his girlified in the stolen 2011 BMW 3 Series, a car he has allegedly stolen before, when the vehicle was identified as stolen by officers from the Queens South Auto Larceny Unit.  

After officers attempted to pull the stolen vehicle over near the intersection of Bailey Boulevard and Merrick Boulevard, the car thief slammed the vehicle into reverse and struck an unmarked police car.  

Then he tried to flee the scene, striking a second unmarked police vehicle.  

The driver and his girlfriend were both taken into custody.   

A total of four police officers were taken to an area hospital in non-critical conditions.
