Two cops injured during traffic stop

WBFO File Photo

Two Buffalo Police officers were injured during a traffic stop on Forest Avenue Saturday afternoon.

Sixteen year old Ronald Miles reversed the minivan he was driving, crashing into the patrol car and injuring both officers. One officer fired his weapon as Miles sped away. The vehicle stopped further along Forest Avenue, and Miles and another occupant took off on foot. Both were later taken into custody. The Minivan was discovered to be stolen.

Miles and his juvenile companion face multiple charges.

The injured officers were treated for non life-threatening injuries.

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
