D.S.A. agents are investigating whether an off-duty Miami Beach police officer was the subject of an on-duty hit-and-run crash, according to a statement from D.F.I.C.’s chief of investigations.
The crash happened in the parking lot of a bar near the D.N.Y. subway station Wednesday afternoon.
It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the collision.
The police chief, who declined to be identified because the investigation is ongoing, said officers were responding to a call from a male driver who allegedly ran a stop sign.
The officers were trying to stop the driver from continuing on foot when he ran into the officers.
The driver hit the patrol car and crashed into a fence.
The driver was transported to a hospital with minor injuries, and no charges were filed.
The police chief said the driver was not wearing a seat belt, and he was taken to a local hospital for a checkup.
Police said he has a criminal record in Miami Beach.
