MIAMI – Miami police are investigating a crash that occurred Friday morning involving one of their officers, and which resulted in the other vehicle ending up on its roof.

The crash occurred at the intersection of West Flagler Street and Northwest 17th Avenue in the city’s Little Havana neighborhood.

Sky 10 was above the scene just after 6:15 a.m. as several police vehicles and Miami Fire Rescue trucks were at the scene.

The black Chevrolet SUV that flipped over onto its roof appeared to have also struck a traffic light pole. There was also heavy front-end damage to the marked police cruiser.

Three people were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital with minor injuries, including two officers.

The westbound lanes from Northwest 16th Avenue to Northwest 17th Avenue on West Flagler Street were shut down for about two hours as authorities investigated before both vehicles were towed away.

The cause of the crash remains unclear.
