Man hit by NYPD cruiser gets billed for car repair

A New York man who was struck and injured by a police car was billed $1,000 by the police department for damage to the vehicle.

Jesse Zorski, 25, was hospitalized at the New York Downtown Hospital after the patrol car struck his left leg, caused him to fall into the side-view mirror and hit the ground while landing on his wrist. The young man was then hospitalized and later received an expensive medical bill totaling $1,200 that his family paid without insurance, the New York Daily News reports.

After the family sued the New York Police Department (NYPD) to cover the cost of the medical expenses, Zorski received a bill in the mail, rather than the financial help he was seeking. The letter accompanying the bill demanded he pay for the $1,028.08 damage done to the patrol car and threatened to file a lawsuit against the victim if he does not address the fine quickly enough.
