Police car slams into bodega in Canarsie, Brooklyn

CANARSIE, Brooklyn — Four are injured after a police SUV drove into a bodega in Canarsie, Brooklyn Saturday afternoon.

The incident happened at a bodega in the vicinity of Rockaway Parkway and Farragut Road.

The police car sped down Farragut, hit a BMW and nearly hit a pedestrian on the sidewalk before crashing into the bodega window.

Police sources said the officers were responding to a call of shots fired, but did not turn their sirens on in order to avoid letting the potential shooter know they were on the way.

Two civilians and two officers from the 69th precinct have been taken to the hospital according to police and fire officials.

They suffered from minor cuts and bruises and are expected to be fine.

Nothing in the bodega was damaged.
