Is it just me?

Or, doesn't it seem like on the average, every 1-2 months, a Rochester, NY Police officer is involved in some sort of motor vehicle accident, in which the cruiser is either severely damaged, or a total loss, costing Rochester, NY taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars.

On Sunday June 30, 2013 a Rochester, NY Police officer crashed into a parked vehicle on Westfield St., in Rochester’s 19th ward neighborhood, around 5:00 a.m.

Neighbors say the were awakened by a “huge bang.”

One woman, who took the photos on the right, said she came outside and saw what she described as a tall Rochester Police officer, bleeding from the back of his head.

According to neighbors, it appears as if the RPD officer fell asleep at the wheel.

On Monday September 23, 2013, a Rochester Police officer crashed into a vehicle carrying three passengers, injuring all three.

Neighbors who stood on the corner of Grape and Campbell Streets on Rochester's west side all said the sane thing,

"That police car must have been doing 70 miles an hour going the wrong way up Campbell', said a man who because of fear of retaliation from Rochester Police, wanted to remain anonymous.

"They don't care. They will cover it all up and somehow blame the driver who was doing nothing wrong," said a woman who also wanted to remain anonymous.

The police car, racing at high speeds gong the wrong way up Campbell Street, which is a One-Way street, struck a white four door Kia Forte sedan, at the intersection of Campbell and Grape Street.

The sedan was traveling southbound on Grape St.

The RPD cruiser, which also had an officer in the passenger seat, was traveling east on Campbell Street.

The crash which occurred around 3:30 pm, sent the sedan spinning until it wound up halfway on a sidewalk, about 30 feet from the intersection.

The RPD cruiser wound up about 45 feet from the intersection.

Not only is it disturbing that the accident happened in a residential neighborhood, but also disturbing is the fact that it occurred as Enrico Fermi School #17, which is located just three blocks down Campbell street, was getting ready to dismiss elementary school children for the day.
