According to a New Brunswick Police Department report, a ten-year-old girl who was struck by a Middlesex County Sherriff’s Office patrol car is recovering from a broken leg she suffered in the accident. The accident occurred as the little girl was trying to cross Suydam Street at Throop Avenue.

According to an article on, the little girl did not see the Sheriff’s Office patrol car, and ran out into the road, striking the side of the car. According to the police report, her head struck the driver’s side mirror, and her legs ended up becoming caught under the car. She was transported to St. Peter’s University Hospital for treatment.

The police report of the accident states that witnesses and the patrol car driver said that the little girl made a sudden move to run into the street.
