Injured Tampa police officer back home after crash

TAMPA — A Tampa police officer required stitches Monday after a colliding with a truck while en route to a call.

Officer Michael D. Noyes, 56, was responding to a 7 a.m. motorcycle crash — his lights and siren on — when a Ford F-150 pulled in front of his patrol car, police said.

He was headed north on 46th Street at about 50 mph.

The truck driver, George Malcolm, 53, had turned left from a stop sign at Whiteway Drive into Noyes' path, witnesses told police.

Lt. Ron McMullen said Noyes was taken to Tampa General Hospital with head injuries that weren't life-threatening and scrapes on his head and arm. He was released to recover at home.

McMullen said the car's airbag saved Noyes' life.

Malcolm did not appear to be injured but was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital as a precaution, McMullen said.

Both cars were totaled.

Noyes is a 23-year veteran of the Tampa Police Department.
