A man struck a police officer with his car as the officer and his partner attempted to pull him over in Long Island City over the weekend.

The two officers attempted to conduct a car stop at around 12:20 p.m. Saturday, when the man—who was driving a white Mercedes Benz—failed to pull over on 22nd Street near 37th Avenue.

The suspect ignored the cops and continued driving and struck one of the officers, according to police.

The officer’s right arm and leg were injured by the impact, police said. He was taken to New York-Presbyterian / Weill Cornell Medical Center in stable condition.

Anyone with information in regard to the incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
