The Star Tribune, citing a conversation with St. Paul PD spokesman Paul Paulos, reports that the woman, Roza Sakhina, was "either nudged or bumped" by a police squad car driven by an as-of-yet-unidentified cop who was trying to back onto a street in the 800 block of Cleveland Avenue.
The cop was responding to another call at the time.
"She (fell) to the ground," Paulos said. "At that time, we didn't know how serious the injuries would be."
Paulos said an investigation is ongoing.
"We're compiling everything from our accident reconstructionist," he said. "We're putting together a full investigation."
The specific injuries Sakhina sustained in the accident haven't been disclosed. Paulos said the officer's identity will likely be released tomorrow.
