MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A Miami police officer was hospitalized after a car slammed into her cruiser.

Miami police said it began with a call about a robbery. When a sergeant’s car passed by a home at 830 NW 18th Avenue, a Mazda parked in front pulled out and rammed it as the driver sped off.

Police officers chased after it.

At SW 17th Avenue and 2nd Street, the Mazda hit two Miami police cruisers. Police say he T-boned one of the cars, pushing it some distance. A police trainee who was in the car was injured. She was taken to Jackson Memorial where she was treated and released, said police spokeswoman Yelitza Cedano-Hernandez.

At SW 11th avenue and 6th Street the Mazda slammed into Yoshvani Medina’s car.

“If I were in the car I would have been injured or dead now,” said Medina.

Police later apprehended the driver of the Mazda, but have not released their name.
