Teen charged in Irvington crash involving cop
An Irvington police officer remains in a medically induced coma after officials say a teenager driving a stolen car slammed into his cruiser.
Elmsford police were chasing 16-year-old Brian Sabia, of Connecticut, last night when Irvington officers offered to assist. That is when police say the teen's speeding Ford slammed into Officer Luigi Osso's vehicle.
Both Osso and Sabia had to be extracted from their mangled vehicles. The officer sustained severe head trauma, while the suspect suffered injuries to his back and legs.
Sabia was arraigned yesterday in his hospital bed at Westchester Medical Center on first-degree assault and reckless endangerment charges.
Hospital officials say Osso is slowly improving.
