CANTON, Ohio– Two Canton police officers received minor injuries after colliding and crashing into a home.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol said around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, two Canton police cruisers were responding to a report of a vehicle suspected in an earlier shooting, but were not pursuing the vehicle.
An officer in a cruiser traveling northbound on Lincoln Avenue NW reported that he slowed for a stop sign but did not stop, looked both ways and began to accelerate.
The cruiser collided with a second Canton cruiser traveling eastbound on 4th Street NW, which did not have a stop sign, investigators said.
The cruisers went off the roadway, with one of them crashing into a home’s garage, causing substantial damage to the garage and cruisers, according to investigators.
Troopers said two officers received minor injuries; no one in the house was hurt.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol said it is not issuing any citations since the officers were in the performance of their duties, responding to a shooting suspect.
