Woman from Bronx Blames Cop Chase for Injuries She Suffered in Wreck
A woman from the Bronx was nearly killed in a head-on car wreck that happened last year. She blames the collision on a 70 mph police chase that was occurring over another driver’s minor traffic violation.
Joanna Green, a 30-year-old, from the Bronx, still has to wear a colostomy bag and is facing a long recovery after the accident changed her life forever. “I can’t even walk two blocks without stopping,” she has said about her injuries.
Green filed a complaint last week alleging that the collision occurred after an NYPD officer was recklessly pursuing a Mercedes-Benz for doing an illegal lane change.
Green was with her brother heading to his early morning shift at UPS at around 2:30 in the morning when the accident happened. She was hospitalized for three months.
