Three Columbus Police Cruisers Involved In Pileup


Three Columbus Police officers were involved in a crash in west Columbus Friday morning.

This happened around 7:30 a.m. on Hague Avenue at I-70 West, near the Columbus Police Training Academy.

Police said three cruisers full of police academy recruits were heading from the training academy to Cooper Stadium for riot training.

The cars were traveling in a convoy when the first car stopped short on Hague Avenue just outside the academy. Officers said the second and third cop cars slammed into each other. According to CPD, the third driver was ruled at fault.

No one was injured.

Hague Avenue was closed for more than an hour due to the crash, but it is now back open.

The recruits were headed to Cooper Stadium for riot training. That also did not go as planned. An instructor released tear gas which drifted over an elementary school.
