Bessie Stallworth tells 7 Action News she's sore and can hardly move, but thankful she's out of the hospital.

The 84-year old collided with a Detroit Police squad car last night around 8:30 near the corner of Livernois and Curtis on the west side.

Stallworth says, "All of a sudden, something hit me like a train. I said 'Oh Lord what hit me.' Then the car kept rolling and kept rolling, that's all I remember. They had to be going like 85-90 to hit me like they did."

Police say they were responding to a call with lights and sirens on, when the two collided.

Stallworth gave us her version saying, "I just feel disgusted. I know they didn't have their lights and sirens on. I do know that."

Two officers were also injured in the crash. The investigation continues into what happened last night.
