Early on Saturday morning, a 32-year-old woman crashed her 2008 Mercedes into two Marion police cruisers on the side of Route 6. The first police car had its emergency lights flashing and there were no police officers in the vehicle at the time of the car crash, which occurred just 2am. Officers were talking to a driver who had been pulled over.
After hitting the first police car and pushing it into the center of the road, the Mercedes hit a second police car, which was parked on the side of the road while the driver assisted the other officer. According to a police report, the vehicle was pushed into the fast lane and sustained moderate damage. The Mercedes was severely damaged.
The driver sustained non-life-threatening injuries and taken to Toby Hospital for treatment. She was later released. No one was else was injured in the auto accident, although the incident forced the closure of Route 6 in both directions for an hour. The motor vehicle crash is still under investigation, but police say alcohol and drugs do not appear to be a factor.
