AMHERST – Amherst police were on the scene of a collision involving a police cruiser and another car on Monday.
“A police officer and two people in the other vehicle were treated in hospital and released,” said Ian Naylor, acting chief of the Amherst Police Department.
The collision occurred just before noon.
“Our vehicle was responding to a call and the initial investigation indicates they had their sirens and lights on and were proceeding up Industrial Park Drive, crossing South Albion Street (onto Robert Angus Drive) when it collided with another vehicle that was proceeding south, out of town,” said Naylor.
Police cordoned off the intersection and remained at the scene for more than two hours taking measurements from many different angles.
Naylor says the investigation is ongoing.
“We have witnesses to talk to,” said Naylor.
