MIDLAND, Ont. – A provincial police officer has been charged after a three-vehicle crash in Midland, Ont., last month.

OPP say the officer was responding to an emergency call for service when their cruiser collided with two other vehicles at an intersection on the afternoon of Oct. 28.

A photo from the scene shows a marked police SUV upside down, evidently T-boned by a red sedan.
