    Police Officer, Woman Hurt in Car Crash

    A police officer and a woman are recovering after a car accident in the Torresdale section of the city.

    Investigators say a police officer with the Traffic Division was traveling eastbound on Academy Road in the right lane shortly after 6:20 a.m. At the same time, a 44-year-old woman was driving a 2002 Silver Chrysler Concorde northbound through the driveway of an apartment complex to turn onto Academy Road.

    Investigators say the woman exited the driveway without stopping, moving into the path of the police vehicle. According to police, the officer did not have enough time to stop and crashed into the Concorde.

    Both the officer as well as the woman were injured in the crash. The officer suffered a laceration to the leg while the woman suffered pain in her head, neck and arm. They were both taken to Aria Torresdale Hospital.

    Investigators say a 34-year-old man and 3-year-old girl were both passengers inside the Concorde. Neither of them were hurt during the accident.

    No charges have been filed. Police continue to investigate.
