A Tampa police officer
and two others are recovering after an accident on the Suncoast Parkway.
Police say Officer Kris
Babino, driving in his police cruiser after work, struck another car when it
slowed down in front of him.
The Florida Highway
Patrol says the vehicle had turned toward the grassy median and stopped,
blocking the inside lane, and troopers say it was unavoidable.
The accident happened in the northbound lanes just north of SR 54.
Babino suffered a
possible broken hand, while the two people inside the car also suffered
non-life threatening injuries.
The driver was cited for improper stopping.
