Four injured as car collides with police vehicle, crashes into Minneapolis hospital

Author:

Four people have been injured after two cars – including a squad car responding to an emergency call – collided in downtown Minneapolis, with one then crashing into the Hennepin County Medical Center building.

Minnesota State Patrol reports that Minneapolis residents Rahma Hassan, 24, and Amina Jama, 30, were being treated for serious injuries after their Suzuki Forenza collided with a Metro Transit squad car at 10.30 p.m. Friday.

The squad car was responding to an emergency call at the time after a Metro Transit bus driver activated a silent alarm, and was northbound on Park Avenue when it collided with the Suzuki traveling south on South 8th Street.

The two officers in the squad car were treated for non-life-threatening injuries, but Hassan and Jama were taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

The force of the smash caused the Suzuki to hit the nearby Hennepin County Medical Center building.

The Pioneer Press says that an estimate of the damage done to the building is not yet available. Minnesota State Patrol continues to investigate the crash and will release the name of the officers involved later this weekend.
