Wheat Ridge police escape injury in head-on crash that left another person seriously injured


WHEAT RIDGE, Colorado — Two Wheat Ridge police officers escaped injury in a head-on crash that left another person seriously injured Sunday morning.

Police Commander Mark Cooney says the officers were in a marked police sport utility vehicle stopped at a traffic light when a Honda Accord veered over the double yellow line and hit the police car.

The officers had only minor injuries, but went to a hospital as a precaution.

The driver and a second passenger in the Accord weren't seriously injured, but were taken to the hospital.
