Toledo police officer involved in collision

A Toledo police officer was involved in a three-vehicle collision Thursday afternoon in West Toledo, officials said.

The crash on North Westwood Avenue, near Dorr Street, was reported at 3:13 p.m., police said.

Two vehicles collided on Westwood and entered Officer Dennis Powers’ lane, causing the officer to crash into the wreckage, police Sgt. Joe Heffernan said. What caused the first two vehicles to collide wasn’t clear.

No injuries were reported, but Sergeant Heffernan said the police cruiser sustained heavy damage and had to be towed from the scene.

Officer Powers will not be cited, the police spokesman said. No charges had been filed Thursday evening against either of the other drivers, whose names were not immediately available.
