UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio (AP) — Police say six people were killed and an officer was injured when a car and a cruiser collided at an intersection just north of Ohio's capital overnight.
The head of the local police union, Jason Pappas, said an officer from suburban Upper Arlington was responding to a robbery report when the crash occurred at an intersection early Friday.
Pappas said the officer apparently had his vehicle's police lights and siren on at the time.
He said six people in the other vehicle, including a small child, died. Officials said none of the six who were killed were wearing seat belts.
Pappas said the officer was being treated for a serious head injury at a hospital and was in stable condition.
