LEOMINSTER, Mass. (AP) — Two state police troopers and another driver were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries after a Ford Explorer and a state police cruiser collided nearly head-on on Route 12.
A state police spokeswoman says the crash occurred just before 8 p.m. Sunday.
Police tell The Sentinel & Enterprise (http://bit.ly/1vsmlVO ) that the trooper was a member of the most recent class of Massachusetts State Police Academy graduates and was driving with a "trooper coach" who was providing on-the-road training.
No names were released.
The crash was nearly head-on, with the Ford Explorer slamming into the front, driver's side of the cruiser, leaving the both vehicles with extensive damage.
The crash remains under investigation and no charges or citations were immediately filed.
