Boeing Freeway

A new Everett Police Officer was hit and taken to the hospital with wrist and hip injuries.

Editor’s Update 10:30 AM: In addition to an Everett Police car, an Everett Police Officer was also struck this morning on the Boeing Freeway. Sgt. Maryjane Hacker tells MyEverettNews.com two police officers, a new officer and his training officer had just pulled up to a crash in the westbound lanes. They checked on the people involved in that crash and were then going back to their car to put on safety vests when a Hyundai hit the rear of their patrol car and also struck the new officer who ended up on the hood of the Hyundai. He was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center with injuries to his wrist and hip. Sgt. Hacker says the injuries were not life-threatening. The driver of the Hyundai is cooperating with traffic investigators as they continue to look into this crash and at least three others this morning on Highway 526.
