The crash closed a portion of the intersection as emergency responders assessed the scene and worked to have the vehicles removed.

All three vehicles sustained significant damage, however, police said all people involved in the crash sustained only minor injuries.

The police officers were taken to hospital via ambulance as a precaution, police said. The driver of one of the other vehicles was also taken to hospital as a precaution and the other occupants were assessed on scene but didn’t need treatment, police said.

The cause of the collision will be investigated by the traffic unit, CPS said.
