An NYPD officer was struck by a man in a stolen vehicle during a traffic stop in Jamaica Wednesday night.

Two officers in an unmarked car spotted a white Subaru SUV that had been reported stolen near Sutphin Boulevard and Tuskegee Airman Way at around 11:30 p.m., police said. They pulled the driver over and exited their own car, when the driver suddenly accelerated and slammed into one of the officers, striking his leg.

The other officer quickly reached for his gun and shot once at the car, according to police.

The driver, who police believe wasn’t hit by the bullet, sped off and remains at large.

The injured officer was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center for treatment and has since been released.

Members of the advisory body will advocate concerns through means of community engagement by participating in one of two cohorts. The first will be made up of high school representatives between the ages of 13 and 17, while the second cohort will be comprised of young adults between the ages of 18 and 25.
