CCPD: Two officers taken to hospital after crash
An accident earlier this afternoon sent two Cape Coral police officers to the hospital, according to officials.
Detective Nick Malone, a spokesman for the CCPD, reported that the two-vehicle crash occurred at approximately 11:40 a.m. on Santa Barbara Boulevard, near Tropicana Parkway, in the northbound lanes. The officers, who were in the same vehicle at the time, were rear-ended.
Both were transported to a local hospital with unknown but non-life threatening injuries. No one from the second vehicle was transported.
The status of the two officers is unknown at this time.
Malone reported that the northbound lanes of Santa Barbara are still shut down due to the crash.
Motorists are encouraged to be careful in the area or use an alternative route.
