Mother Allegedly Collides with Police Vehicle in Long Island NY, Flees with One-Year-Old in Car

In Elmont, Long Island, a 24-year-old mother named Tanaisha Ferrell allegedly hit a police car in the parking lot of a CVS pharmacy. She then reportedly fled the scene with her one-year-old son in the backseat.
The car accident occurred on Monday, September 5. According to law enforcement, Ferrell drove recklessly, paying no attention to traffic lights, and later struck a vehicle that was unoccupied. Ultimately, Ferrell ceased driving when she arrived at a dead end. She was then arrested by police.
While Ferrell’s son was unharmed, a police officer who was in the patrol car at the time of the auto accident suffered injuries in the crash. The officer was later transported to a local hospital for medical treatment.
Ferrell now faces the following charges in Long Island, NY:

  • Reckless driving
  • Unlawful fleeing of a police officer
  • Endangering the welfare of a child
  • Fleeing the scene of an accident that caused physical injury
  • Multiple vehicle and traffic violations

Although there were no fatalities in the motor vehicle accident, the motorist allegedly caused the police officer to suffer injuries. Beyond that, the accident could potentially have resulted in far worse consequences. While allegedly driving recklessly and leaving the scene of the accident, Ferrell could have endangered the life of her child and the lives of other motorists, their passengers, and pedestrians.

If you were injured due to a motorist’s reckless driving behavior, call the personal injury attorneys at Proner and Proner. We are prepared to help you prove negligence on the part of the wrongdoer and secure compensation for your loss.
