A Waterloo man rammed his SUV into a police car, injuring two officers during a disturbance investigation Tuesday.

The driver, Kelvin Plain Jr., originally left the scene at police request, threatening officers as he pulled away, police said. Plain drove down Niles Street, but returned a few minutes later, hitting his Saturn sport utility vehicle’s accelerator and ramming one squad car into another and hitting a neighbor’s passenger car at a high speed, said Daniel Trelka, Waterloo director of safety services.

The impact forced one of the police cruisers into a tree on a nearby lawn. The officer inside, Randall Hammitt, 52, was taken to Allen Hospital for his injuries. A neighbor said Hammitt was covered in blood but was conscious and able to walk.  SEE MORE
