police lights

An Avondale Police officer was involved in a multi-vehicle wreck Monday, July 13.

According to Pier Simeri, an Avondale spokeswoman, “At approximately 8:39 am, the Avondale Police Department responded to a three-vehicle accident, including one of our officers at the intersection of Indian School Road and Dysart Road.”

She said the Avondale Fire and Medical also responded and treated “several of the vehicle occupants, some of them with serious injuries.  Several occupants were transported to local hospitals.”

She said the police officer was stopped at a red light at the intersection at the time of the collision  and was treated “for very minor injuries.

“The intersection was shut down for further investigation, as impairment was a factor in this accident. It is open again,” Simeri said.
