Police on Friday night were searching for a suspect who led them on a pursuit through downtown Miami that wrecked a squad car and sent an officer and another driver to the hospital.
The crash happened after 4 p.m. at Northwest 12th Avenue and 29th Street, as officers followed a 1999 or 2000 silver Nissan Maxima that matched the description of a car used in an armed robbery earlier in the day.
A patrol car collided with a civilian vehicle at the intersection, according to Miami Herald news partner WFOR-CBS 4. The officer’s injuries were not serious, CBS 4 reported. The driver of the other car also was expected to be OK.
Police continued to look for the Maxima after it evaded them near Northwest 71st Street and North Miami Avenue.
