Cop Who Hit Teacher Was Apparently Talking on the Phone

By

The story of a Brooklyn Spanish teacher hit and killed in a crosswalk by an NYPD van in Williamsburg on Saturday is bad enough. But DNAinfo has the extra detail that the officer driving the van was apparently talking on the phone at the time of the crash, a big no no that will get you a $100 fine and five points on your license even if nobody's hurt. The officer wouldn't surrender the phone to investigators, so they've now subpoenaed its records.
