Officer Bianca Bennett, who worked at the 9th Precinct on Fifth Street, died in a single-car crash in the Bronx on Wednesday night, according to published reports. She was 27.
Per the Post:
Sources say Bennett was a passenger in a red Dodge Durango driven by a fellow off-duty officer, who lost control and ran off the roadway. The SUV flipped and burst into flames.
The other officer reportedly sustained trauma and burns to both of his legs. He remains in critical condition at Jacobi Hospital.
The rookie officer was set to marry her high school sweetheart in April.
