“In my conversations with it was either the police commissioner or mayor, maybe both, even a person who doesn’t have a police background can see that was just what it was an accident. And most people are not incarcerated because of an accident.” State Assembly Majority Leader Crystal Peoples-Stokes via WIVB
The New York State officer, Ronald L. Ensminger Jr., suffered from a shattered pelvis and broken leg, due to the accident. He was working the police line on Bailey Ave on June 1. Two other officers were injured. Officer Ensminger was released from the hospital on June 19, according to WKBW.
