Police officer injured in Center City crash

A female Philadelphia police officer suffered fractures to her leg and pelvis when her crusier was struck in Center City last night. Police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore said the 48-year-old officer was riding north on 7th Street, on her way to back up another cop, when a motorist traveling east on Market slammed into the cop car.

Rescuers had to use the Jaws of Life to pry the officer out of the crumpled car. Vanore said the officer was "awake and complaining of pain" when she was admitted to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. She was listed in stable condition late last night.

The driver of the other car was unharmed. No charges were filed.
