DES MOINES — Des Moines police say three officers involved in two crashes have been found at fault and disciplined.
The first crash happened April 7 at a four-way stop sign. In that case, officers Phil Terrones and Brandon Holtan were headed to a shots-fired report. Neither fully stopped at the signs and collided.
The other crash came April 27 when officer Mitchell Cameron was responding to assist another officer and ran a red light. Police said he hit another vehicle broadside.
Police said the officers have been disciplined but they declined to be specific because the matter is a personnel issue.
In general, Sgt. Jason Halifax said crashes of patrol cars in which officers are at fault usually result in suspensions.
