A police officer was caught up in the moment, failing to keep his eyes on the road as they managed to wander to his phone at the exact wrong time.
As he cut a corner a little bit too sharply, with his eyes on the phone, the officer would eventually find himself in a situation where he ran over a bicycle rider. There was no stopping or slamming on the brakes as it would appear as if he didn’t notice the stopped rider until after they already made contact.
Luckily, the rider says that he doesn’t think he sustained any major injuries and was able to walk away from the accident. As per protocol, the officer did call up the state police instead of his own local police department to avoid a conflict of interest.
As of yet, no charges have been filed against the officer but it does seem as if the bicycle rider doesn’t really know how this one is going to pan out just yet.
