CUYAHOGA FALLS – Cuyahoga Falls Police Officer Ted Davis was seriously injured in a crash last weekend while on duty.

The suspect, who was also badly injured, was fleeing from officers when he plowed into officer Davis’ cruiser.

Although he will not return to work for several months, on Friday, officer Davis was released from the hospital.

A fund has been set up for the family at the Falls Catholic Credit Union. Anyone wishing to contribute can contact the credit union directly at 330 929 7341 or by stopping in at 33 Graham Rd. Cuyahoga Falls.

Prior to the crash, police say the suspect is believed to have called 911 ranting about police and threatening to kill officers. Police say the suspect then drove into the Cuyahoga Falls police parking lot and smashed several cruisers with his pickup.

No charges have been filed at this time.

Detectives are continuing to investigate.
