A woman is facing charges and a police officer is recovering after it appears that he was knocked unconscious during a collision between the two on Saturday night.

Police say Officer Charles Goldstein was southbound on York Street at approximately 8:00pm near the intersection of Walnut Street while responding to a call on Noyes Street when it appears that Mary Jo Edick, who was driving north, drifted into the southbound lane and hit Officer Goldstein’s vehicle, UPD Car 53.

The drivers’ sides of both vehicles collided but Edick’s car kept gliding until it finally came to a rest on the lawn of the Mohawk Valley Psychiatric Center.  Utica Police say that both cars suffered significant damage.

Edick’s son, who is ten years old, was a passenger in the car.  It did not appear that the young man or Edick, who is 47 years old, were injured.

The Utica Police Department is still investigating following accident reconstruction.  Edick was arrested and charged with DWI, felony aggravated DWI under Leandra’s Law, and endangering the welfare of a child.  Additional charges are pending further investigation.

The Utica Fire Department brought Officer Goldstein to St. Elizabeth Medical Center for treatment.
