The Ocoee police officer who collided with a woman’s vehicle while chasing two armed robbery suspects last week has been ticketed by the Florida Highway Patrol.
Troopers said Officer Chris Bonner blew through a red light last Thursday while chasing two armed suspects.
Bonner crashed into a vehicle being driven by Yahaira Castro Montavalo, who had the green light. Castro Montavalo was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
On Wednesday, Castro Montavalo announced her intention to sue the city of Ocoee.
Bonner is on paid administrative leave.
