    2 Officers Struck by Car During Traffic Stop on Staten Island: NYPD

    The NYPD says two officers were hit by a car during a traffic stop on Staten Island.

    The officers stopped a late-model Nissan Altima for running a red light around 1 a.m. Tuesday in Clifton, authorities say. As they were approaching the car, it shifted into reverse and hit the officers before taking off.

    Police say one officer was hit in the right knee and the other was struck in the right hip. Both officers were treated at a hospital and released.

    Investigators are looking for three men who were in the vehicle that fled. 

    Police released surveillance photos of the car. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
