Crash involving Trotwood police cruiser sends 3 to hospital

Two Trotwood police officers were taken to a local hospital Wednesday following a two-car crash.

The crash involving the Trotwood police SUV cruiser was reported just after 3:45 p.m. on Olive Road at Mantz Road in Trotwood.

A witness said the driver of a black car pulled out in front of the cruiser, causing the crash, which is under investigation by the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

Preliminary investigation showed a black 2003 Volkswagen Jetta was headed east on Mantz Avenue and stopped at the posted stop sign. The Jetta then pulled into the intersection to turn left but did not yield the right of way and struck the Trotwood police cruiser, a 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe, according to a release from the sheriff’s office.

The driver of the black car and the two officers were taken to a local hospital for minor injuries.
