Three people, including a longtime York Area Regional Police officer, were injured in a three-vehicle crash in York Township Thursday afternoon, police said.
Officer Terry Meyers Jr. and Wendy Harrison, a driver of another vehicle involved in the crash, were taken to York Hospital following the 2:30 p.m. crash at the intersection of South Queen Street and Honey Valley Road, according to York Area Regional Police.
Meyers was talking in the ambulance and his injuries are not life threatening, said Sgt. Jeffry Dunbar.
The extent of Harrison's injuries was not immediately known.
Harrison, 44, of Dallastown, was driving a Ford Freestyle south on South Queen Street when the SUV crossed into the northbound lanes, police said.
The SUV sideswiped a Hyundai Sonata driven by Katie Little, 24, of Felton, and then crashed into the Ford Police Interceptor cruiser driven by Meyers, police said.
Little was treated at the scene for minor injuries, police said.
It's not known why Harrison's SUV crossed into the opposing lanes, Dunbar said.
Meyers was not responding to a call at the time of the crash and did not have the lights and siren of the police cruiser on, Dunbar said.
Meyers has been with the department since 2003 and previously was an officer with the Red Lion Police Department before it merged with York Area Regional.
Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Sgt. Tim Damon at (717) 741-1259.
