Officer Christopher Simone is still in a medically induced coma after being involved in a nasty car wreck earlier today. Simone, a 12-year veteran, was rushing to Hahnemann University Hospital shortly after 1 a.m. this morning when another car crashed into his cruiser at Broad and Spring Garden, said police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore.
"He had his lights and sirens on. It appears the other driver, who was going west bound on Spring Garden, just didn't see him," Vanore said. Simone, who was on his way to Hahnemann to help officers struggling with an unruly emergency room patient, suffered head trauma, broken ribs and a broken leg. The unidentified driver of the other vehicle was also listed in critical condition.
