More than half of Lindsay Police Department involved in crash
PONCA CITY, Okla. (KOKH) —
More than half of the Lindsay Police Department was involved in a crash Wednesday while at training in northern Oklahoma.
Lindsay Police Department Chief Clint Wood says that officers were in Ponca City for Sept. 19 for CLEET training. When the officers broke for lunch they were stopped in a line of traffic on 14 Street near Cooley when a semi crashed into the back of a vehicle containing two officers.
That vehicle was pushed into a truck, which in turn crashed into another vehicle containing four more Lindsay officers.
The two officers in the first vehicle were transported to a Ponca City hospital. One of those officers was airlifted to Oklahoma City for his injuries. The four officers in the third vehicle are being evaluated Thursday. All officers are expected to okay.
The semi belonged to Noble County.
Wood says that Lindsay Police Department has 10 officers, six of which were involved in the crash. The department is able to cover all shifts.
