According to St. Petersburg Police (SPPD), a police cruiser was rear-ended by an impaired driver on Central Avenue near 31st Street at about 8:35PM on Tuesday, March 8, 2016.

The officer had parked his cruiser with the lights on, behind a disabled car while it waited for a tow truck.

While the officer was sitting in the cruiser, 57 year-old Cathy Ann Moloney of St. Petersburg rear-ended the police cruiser.
