The article reports on a police car accident in Brooklyn, New York City, which left at least five people injured and led to a Level One police mobilization and dozens of people on the street protesting police brutality. Just before the accident, the police had arrested, handcuffed and placed Zachary Ballard, a criminal, in a police cruiser, and then while in the patrol car, the police ran a red light at the corner of Macon Street and Nostrand Avenue, and rammed a silver 2002 Honda Accord, which ran into a pole, and then smashed into the corner of a bodega on the opposite side of the street. According to an eyewitness, the responding officers took away police personnel in the patrol car, leaving the injured prisoner in the back of the car.
