The crash happened about a mile away from the standoff situation, at the intersection of East 163rd Street and Third Avenue in the Morrisania section.
The impact was so powerful that the officer was trapped in the vehicle and had to be extricated using the Jaws of Life
He was rushed to Lincoln Hospital with neck and back injuries. The injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
The driver of the SUV, identified by his wife as Andres Baez, was also rushed to the hospital. His wife says he was coming home from work when he was hit.
"My husband called the house, 'I'm dying, I'm dying, the cop just hit me,'" Carmen Baez said. "We ran, because we live two blocks away. So that's what we know. When we came, my husband was already in the ambulance."
Investigators are trying to determine who was at fault in the incident.
