State Troopers on Cuomo Security Detail Injure Two Pedestrians in Two Days

State troopers driving in Westchester County for Governor Andrew Cuomo's security detail injured two pedestrians in separate crashes over the last two days, according to a report by the Associated Press. The AP report, via Capitol Tonight:

Authorities say a second pedestrian has been injured after being hit by an unmarked car driven by a state trooper from Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s security detail near the governor’s Westchester County home over the past two days.

State police say 50-year-old Jeronimo Ardon Perez of Mount Kisco was hit on Route 117 in Mount Kisco about 7 p.m. Thursday by a car driven by Investigator Gregory Panzarella. Perez was taken to Westchester Medical Center. His condition wasn’t immediately available Friday.

The other pedestrian, 22-year-old Dolce Perez, was hit by an unmarked car driven by Sgt. Joseph Crispino on Wednesday morning on Route 133 in Mount Kisco.

According to the AP, the officers were on duty but not responding to an emergency and the police are investigating the crashes. Though the two victims were injured on Wednesday and Thursday, the news is only coming out now.

A spokesperson for the governor tells Capitol Tonight that Cuomo was not in either of the vehicles at the times of the crashes.
