Two Leland police officers suffered minor injuries during a traffic stop.
Just after 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 25, Leland Officer Inman Rahman attempted a traffic stop at U.S. 74/76 west near the Mount Misery Road exit.
The driver, Benjamin Patrick Jr., failed to yield to blue lights and siren for a short distance. Once he stopped, he had to be pulled from his vehicle.
Patrick failed to put his vehicle into park and it began to roll backward, striking Rahman and Officer Jeff Salyer with the open door.
