APD releases name of officer involved in horrific crash


Albuquerque police released the name of the officer involved in Monday's horrific crash. A mother and two children were turning left to go eastbound on Indian School Road when APD officer Johnathan McDonnell T-boned their car while going northbound on Eubank Boulevard. The family's SUV spun around and was pinned to a stop light pole.

APD spokesperson Simon Drobik said McDonnell had his lights and siren on during the accident. Drobik also said there was a green light at the intersection.

McDonnell was reportedly on his way to a violent crime on Juan Tabo Boulevard, where an individual was threatening people in a local business with a knife.

The brutal collision sent everyone involved to a hospital. McDonnell has undergone at least two surgeries and has a broken leg and ankle.

The family asked for the mother and children's conditions not be released, Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office said.

1. Two points

1. There has been no follow up report regarding the individual who was threatening people in a local business with a knife.
This being the officer's excuse, what happened to the guy with the knife?

2. News reports say it will be a week or longer before police interview the officer.
Guess that will give him time to get his story straight, speak with his union rep, and buddies.

Does anyone think the cops would wait a week or longer before interviewing civilians?
