ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Albuquerque police are investigating a pedestrian crash involving one of their own vehicles.

Just before Central, a woman reportedly stepped into traffic, leading to the crash.
The officer reportedly called dispatch, prompting medical personnel to the scene. They took the pedestrian to the hospital with critical but non-life-threatening injuries.
