The Las Vegas police officer who ran a red light on Saturday, injuring himself and a woman in another car, was identified as 40-year-old Robert Bradley.
He has been with the Police Department since February 2008 and is a patrol officer assigned to the department’s Northwest Area Command.
Police said Bradley was heading east on Ann Road in the right lane when he ran the red light and entered the intersection at Jones Boulevard at 5:47 p.m.
His vehicle struck a 2004 Suzuki Forenza driven by Max Morosco, 40, that was heading north on Jones, according to police. Bradley and a 39-year-old woman in the Suzuki were treated for minor injuries at the scene and released.
Bradley was decorated by the department this month for his role in rescuing an infant who was placed on a porch by her mother, who was being held at gunpoint by her boyfriend.
Bradley and a sergeant ran to the porch to get the 8-month-old child while the boyfriend shot at them from an upstairs window, according to police. The sergeant was struck in the arm and Bradley recovered the child.
The suspect later killed his girlfriend and himself.
