Cop Hit By A City Car After Arguing A Ticket

A police detective was in stable condition Saturday following surgery on his back for nerve damage after he was struck by a car driven by a city traffic agent, police said.

The detective, Thomas Candido, assigned to the Bronx Street Narcotics and Guns Unit, was injured Friday afternoon after a confrontation with city traffic agents over a parking ticket, police said.

Police said Candido and his partner, Detective John Keeley, parked their car on the street while they went into a Chemical Bank branch to deposit seized drug money.

When the detectives came out, the agent was writing a ticket and an argument followed.

The traffic agent, Vera Hosein, 34, struck Candido as she pulled away in her car, police said. Hosein was charged with leaving the scene of an accident and was issued a summons.
