Officer Vezza was airlifted late Saturday June 21st after sustaining injuries from being hit by a suspected drunk driver. Officer Vezza was out of his car at a traffic stop on the Black Horse Pike.

Remember not only is Drinking and Driving illegal but it is also NJ law to safely move over and provide a lane of buffer for all emergency vehicles, tow trucks, road crews and any other vehicles displaying emergency lights on the highway. It is very dangerous to be out on a busy roadway please help keep us safe!
