Camden County police are seeking an ATV driver who injured two officers late Saturday.
Police intend to charge the driver with attempted murder of a police officer, among other offenses, after running into a detective and knocking him into the street.
At 11:14 p.m. Detective Kenneth Egan and Officer Nicole Berry were patrolling the area of Broadway and Mount Vernon Street. The corner is the location of a gas station and car wash.
There they saw a male suspect tampering with equipment at East Coast Gas, and Egan and Berry got out of their patrol car and ordered the man to stop. Police said the suspect ignored the order and drove his ATV toward the police car, striking the passenger side door.
The door hit Berry, injuring the officer.
