2 ISP cruisers damaged while troopers responded to calls in Richmond 

Two Indiana state troopers were injured when their cruisers collided while responding to separate calls in Richmond early Saturday morning.

Indiana State Police troopers Sam Cook and Jacob Ridgway were going on calls for Richmond police as that agency investigated a double-homicide when the crash occurred on U.S. 40, according to ISP.

Cook was headed to a suspected overdose call and Ridgway was following while en route to another call when Cook missed his turn and swerved to turn around, according to ISP.

Ridway reported that when this happened he was "caught off guard." He slowed down and swerved left, but struck Cook’s cruiser in the front fender, according to ISP.

Cook refused treatment at the scene but Ridgway and another trooper who was his passenger were taken to Reid Health Hospital where they were treated and released, according to ISP.
