About Officer James O’Donnell – Farmington Police Department
Officer James O’Donnell’s was investigating a suspicious vehicle. He attempted to box the vehicle in and as he did the suspect vehicle accelerated, pinning his lower body between the drivers door of the suspect vehicle and the driver’s side of his police cruiser. As the suspect fled, Officer O’Donnell remained crushed between the vehicles and was dragged along the side of both vehicles causing him serious physical injury. Officer O’Donnell’s road to recovery will be long and arduous and as such will keep him out of work and in need of assistance for him, his wife and two small children. His recovery is expected to take over a year and many, many hours of physical therapy.
