Blotter: Police car totaled in two-vehicle crash

Comments () A Text Size

A police car was totaled during an afternoon crash Wednesday in The Colony.

The police officer driving the vehicle was responding to a call with his lights and siren on when another vehicle failed to yield, T-boning the squad car at the intersection of North Colony Boulevard and Main Street during the lunch hour Wednesday, Lt. Darren Brockway said.

Both the officer and driver of the passenger vehicle were treated at the scene for minor cuts, scrapes and bruises, police said.

During the preliminary investigation, Brockway said investigators determined the man driving the second vehicle was at fault. He was issued a citation for failing to yield to an emergency vehicle before he was released.

“I don’t anticipate further charges,” he said.

Both vehicles had to be towed from the scene.
