ROCHESTER - While Rochester and State Police have released no information regarding Sunday's crash involving a Rochester Police cruiser, Sunday's police log show that one patient was taken by ambulance to Frisbie Memorial Hospital for treatment of injuries.
Police responded to the accident at the corner of Portland Street and Columbus Avenue at 10:42 a.m.
|A vehicle in the middle of the road at the scene of the crash appears to have minor front end driver's side damage.
The Rochester Voice was onscene less than five minutes later as fire personnel were placing cones to divert traffic around the intersection which was fully closed. At that time the cruiser was headed south in the northbound lane of Columbus Avenue while a small blue or gray sedan with what appears to be minor front damage on the driver's side is headed south in a northbound lane that points vehicles left onto Portland Street.
It did appear that at least some of the airbags in the cruiser deployed.
Engine 5 and Heavy Rescue 1 from Rochester Fire also responded to the crash.
The police log does not make clear whether the accident that occurred was a one-, two- or multi-vehicle crash although only the cruiser appears to have been towed from the scene.
Rochester Police on Monday noted that since a city cruiser was involved, State Police are investigating the cause to ensure transparency.
State Police in Epping have not yet returned a call requesting information.
