2 Portland officers injured in crash with ambulance
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Police say two Portland officers were injured when their patrol car collided with an ambulance in Northwest Portland.
The crash occurred around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Portland Police Bureau spokesman Pete Simpson says no one in the ambulance was injured and it was not carrying a patient.
He says the two officers hurt were believed to have non-life-threatening injuries.
Simpson says a second ambulance took one officer to a hospital and a colleague drove the other officer in a patrol vehicle.
Simpson says the officers were apparently responding to a reported shooting when the crash occurred.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
