A police officer and motorist are in hospital after a three-car crash involving a police cruiser in Brampton.

Just after 3:00 p.m. on Monday, Peel Regional Police (PRP) said there had been a collision at Bovaird Drive and Hurontario Street in Brampton.

Video and photos captured on scene showed a police cruiser with front end damage came to a stop against a traffic signal pole, and two other vehicles as well as a tow truck stopped in the intersection.

The intersection was blocked off with police tape, and police advised drivers in the area to find alternate routes.

Early reports indicated the collision was a two-car crash, but a police spokesperson said there were three vehicles involved including the police cruiser.

Police said the driver of one of the vehicles and one PRP officer were transported to hospital. The extent of the driver’s injuries was not known, and the officer suffered non-life threatening injuries according to police.

A police spokesperson said the crash was not related to a pursuit.
