A woman involved in collision with a Fort Worth police officer believes the city should pay for her medical bills and the damage to her vehicle, according to NBC DFW. 34-year-old Catalina Garcia was driving with her teenage son at about 11:30 a.m. on February 26th when the accident occurred. Garcia claims she turned into her driveway, and the police officer in an unmarked vehicle crashed into her car. Believing it was a road rage incident, Garcia drove to a nearby police station, only to find that she was actually hit by a police officer. Garcia, who was ticketed for an improper turn, alleges that the officer gave a false account the accident, including claiming he saw her use her cell phone, which Garcia claims she did not do. A neighbor, however, confirmed the officer’s account of what happened. Still, Garcia feels because she was hit from behind, the city of Fort Worth should pay the damage to her vehicle.
