ROY — A Roy police officer was injured Friday afternoon when his patrol vehicle was involved in a crash while responding to a traffic accident.
The officer, whose name was not released, was en route to a motor vehicle crash at 1900 West and Midland Drive about 4 p.m., said Police Chief Gregory G. Whinham.
As the patrol vehicle, with lights and siren operating, crossed the intersection of 1900 West and Hinckley Drive, it was struck by a
west-bound Ford Explorer.
The patrol car spun around and hit a Ford Mustang stopped at the intersection, prepared to turn east, said Whinham.
The officer injured his left shoulder and was taken by ambulance to McKay-Dee Hospital. He was expected to be released Friday night, said Whinham.
A man and woman in the Explorer and a man in the Mustang were treated at the scene and released. The patrol car and Explorer sustained significant damage and the Mustang had minor damage.
The crash is being investigated by the Riverdale Police Department and information on whether any citations were issued was unavailable.
The Weber County Sheriff’s Office investigated the initial minor accident.
