Woman Flees Crash That Injured a Miami Police Officer

The woman accused of leaving the scene of an accident that injured a Miami police officer has been arrested.

Amalia Gonzalez, 29, of Miami Beach, faces charges including possession of a stolen vehicle and leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.

"Gonzalez was driving a Kia Sorrento north on U.S. Highway 1 about 2:45 a.m. Monday when she somehow lost control and collided with a Miami police cruiser traveling in the opposite direction," said Coral Gables police Sgt. Tomas Salcedo.

Salcedo also said Gonzalez ran after hitting the officer's cruiser. She was taken into custody near Ponce de Leon Boulevard and Ruiz Avenue.

Miami police Officer Alain Guerra suffered a broken wrist in the crash.

Gonzalez was booked into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center and held on a $11,500 bond.
