NYPD car bursts into flames in Brooklyn crash


An NYPD squad car burst into flames – injuring two cops – late Sunday when a BMW driver slammed into their cruiser, sending it careening into a pole in Brooklyn, cops said. 

The two officers were on their way to a report of a fight around 10:40 p.m. – with their lights and sirens on – when a 39-year-old woman in a BMW rammed into their vehicle at 65th Street and Eighth Avenue in Dyker Heights, police said. 

The impact sent the police car careening into a pole, where it caught fire, police said.
