A Police officer and a member of the public are receiving treatment in hospital after being involved in a crash in Dunedin this morning.
Five vehicles – a Police car, a bus, and three other cars – were involved in the crash at the intersection of York Place and Smith Street just before 8:30am.
Initial information suggests the male officer who was driving the Police car possibly suffered a medical event and the car has collided with the other vehicles.
One woman was trapped by a vehicle and has since been freed.
She received moderate to serious injuries and has been taken to hospital.
A baby in her care was also checked at hospital but is understood to have minor injuries.
Police are investigating to determine the exact circumstances of what happened.
