A security camera at WABC-TV building on Columbus Avenue and 66th street caught footage of the crash (the Nissan and police car are in the upper right of the frame.)

A wild scene played out in the mid-60’s on Columbus Avenue Sunday night.

Police were racing to the scene of a man wielding a knife on Columbus around 66th street, according to ABC News. One cop car drove North on (Southbound) Columbus, which clearly surprised the driver of a Nissan crossing Columbus at 66th street. The driver,  Eugene Kaminsky, T-boned the police car in the intersection, as seen in the video below.

Police were able to apprehend the knife-wielding man, according to ABC, and no one was reported injured.

      My best wishes to Eugene Kaminsky. My worst to the knife-wielding thug.

      Stay strong.

      In Massachusetts police officers are NOT allowed to break traffic rules, for the primary reason that is puts innocent people in harms way. Diving in the wrong direction on a one was street has been illegal for a long time – especially for the police. This is an outright dangerous act that put this innocent driver in danger. Shame on you.

          Dude, chill. It was a one letter typo. If this is what sets you off, you might consider reaching out for help.

            ScooterStan has a history of flying off the handle here. It’s disturbing, the things that sets them off.

            • Independent says:

              “them”? Are you suggesting that ScooterStan is actually more than one person?
              I agree that his reprimand, for nothing more than an obvious typo, was gratuitous and obnoxious.

              (Just after I praised him in a different thread…)

      Maybe this should be titled “Police Car Drives Wrong Way on One-Way Street, Fails to Stop (or slow down) at Red Light that He/She Cannot See and Unceremoniously Crashes into Innocent Motorist With Right of Way”

      If we would only wake up and ban cars and knives then tragedies like this would be averted!

    5. Josh says:

      The headline is definitely misleading. The sedan did none of the “slamming.” Thus:

      Bad reporting. Kaminsky did not “T bone” the cop ca IMO. The police vehicle struck Kaminsku’s car.
