TROY — Police in Troy are investigating a crash involving one of their on-duty officers on Tuesday evening.
The crash, which occurred on West Main Street at the southbound entrance ramp to Interstate 75, was reported by the officer who was involved around 7:36 p.m.
According to Troy Police Department Capt. Zac Mumford, Officer Nathan Wise was headed east on Main Street in the area of the Interstate 75 overpass when a vehicle turned in front of him, hitting him and causing extensive damage to the cruiser.
Capt. Mumford said Wise and the driver of the other vehicle, Alexander Hall, 18, of Dayton, were not injured. Hall claimed he didn’t see the patrol vehicle as he was turning left onto the southbound Interstate 75 ramp due to another vehicle being in front of him as he waited to make the turn.
Hall was cited with right of way when turning left. Mumford said the patrol cruiser will likely be totaled due to the extensive damage.
