Driver Hits Lauderhill Police Officer in Rollover Crash During Traffic Stop

LAUDERHILL, FLA. – A Lauderhill Police officer was hospitalized after being hit by a driver during a traffic stop that resulted in a rollover crash.

On Saturday around 8 p.m., the officer pulled over a driver on Northwest 44th Street in Lauderhill. The driver, identified as Crystalee Tennant-Parnther, 26 years old, opened the driver’s side door but refused to provide any information to the officer.

As the officer stood in the doorframe, the suspect accelerated forward, hitting a fence. Then, while the officer was still next to the vehicle, the suspect reversed and struck the officer with the open door.

Tennant-Parnther fled at a high speed along Northwest 44th Street, but her escape came to an abrupt end when she crashed into a tree, causing her vehicle to overturn.

She was taken to a local hospital for medical clearance and later booked into the Broward County Main Jail. She now faces multiple charges, including aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer.

The injured officer was transported to Florida Medical Center, where he received treatment and was subsequently released.
