ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- An Albuquerque Police Department officer injured in a crash with a civilian car is still under sedation in the hospital recovering from serious injuries. KOB-TV learned Thursday his broken leg is extremely severe.
APD said the officer involved in the crash is Johnathan McDonnell, and he joined the department in 2008. He's currently assigned to patrol in the Foothills Area Command.
After McDonnell collided with another car at the intersection of Eubank and Indian School Monday evening, paramedics took McDonnell away on a stretcher. APD said he suffered a broken femur and ankle in the crash.
Police said McDonnell has his lights and sirens on as he was responding to reports of a man threatening people with a knife at a grocery store. APD said McDonnel had a green light when it happened.
The Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office is now investigating the cause of the crash.
