Lauderhill Police Officer Airlifted After Struck On Foot By Hit-And-Run Driver In Broward County

A Lauderhill police officer was taken to the hospital Thursday, September 24, after being struck by another vehicle in a hit-and-run accident in Broward County, according to the CBS 4 news website. Officer Elijah Rodgers was not in his police cruiser at the time of the accident, but on foot; he was talking to a driver he had pulled over when the driver fled the scene, dragging the officer for a short time and running over him. Following the Broward County car-pedestrian accident, the officer was airlifted to Broward General Medical Center where he was reportedly in stable condition. Lauderhill policemen detained and are interviewing the possible hit-and-run driver, who faces charges pending investigation.

Since the crash occurred while the officer was on duty, he may have a case for a workers’ compensation claim, which he may choose to pursue rather than a personal injury car accident claim.
