Police Officer dragged by car driven by two teens

Officer Craig Walsh was on patrol in the Howard Johnson Hotel located at 832 N.

Black Horse Pike, when he observed a young male running from the hotel complex to the car that was parked in middle of the driveway with its lights off.

The young male entered into the front passenger side of the car.

As he observed this suspicious activity, Officer Walsh pulled up and activated his emergency lights and approached the passenger side, as the passenger side door was still open.

The vehicle was turned off and was occupied by another young male in the driver's seat.

While Officer Walsh was speaking with the occupants, the driver suddenly started the car, put the car in reverse, and accelerated backwards.

Officer Walsh was instantly pinned in the open passenger side door, and he was dragged approximately 49 feet before the driver smashed into a tree, causing the car's airbags to deploy.

Officer Walsh's right foot was run over by the car.

Although he was injured, Officer Walsh was able to still detain the two suspects, who were later identified as two 17 year old males.
