Shortly after the first accident a police officer was rear-ended as he was responding to a crash. The officer was sitting in his vehicle at the time. According to Sgt. Jeanette Saccente the officer, "did receive minor injuries."
The final accident occurred when an ambulance was responding to a separate accident. The ambulance crashed head-on into a car at the intersection of Black Rock Avenue and New Hampshire Drive. The EMT's and driver of the other vehicle were taken to area hospitals.
