In order for a plaintiff to successfully assert that a defendant was negligent, a plaintiff will have to prove four elements.
First, a plaintiff must show that the defendant owed the plaintiff a "duty of care." The legal term "duty of care" basically means that one party was obligated to act in a certain way toward another.
Next, a plaintiff must show that the defendant breached the "duty of care" he owed to the plaintiff.
Third, a plaintiff will have to show that the defendant's breach of his duty of care proximately caused the plaintiff's injury.
Last, the plaintiff needs to show that he was damaged or injured in some way.
So, yes, even if the 3/1 officer was GENERALLY negligent, the duty to take you in for a arrest warrant was not owed to you individually, but only to the public at large; also even if you can prove the other three elements somehow, the proximate cause link would be hard to establish given the intervening cause of either your or the other driver's negligence as the primary cause of the accident on 3/2.
