"Then, the other officer was caught on the passenger side and ripped around," Geibel said.
He grabbed a towel from his van and ran to put pressure one of the officer's wounds. At the same time, the driver who hit the officers backed up and drove to the end of the block, made a U-turn and took off past them going the other direction.
The neighbors said they are sorry the officers were hurt, but they don't want to lose having them on foot.
"Police walk by here all the time," said Bill Daniels.
