Police officer involved in four car crash

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- A four car accident on Yakima Avenue tied up traffic downtown Thursday.

It happened just before 3pm.

A Moxee Police Officer was involved in the accident that sent him, and another driver to the hospital.

Yakima police say the unmarked Moxee police car was driving down Yakima Avenue to a call with its emergency lights on when it collided with another car in the intersection. 

A woman who was involved says she didn't see it coming. 

"I didn't even look up until I heard the impact, and then he was coming right at me so.... Had nowhere to go so I just braced myself," said Andrea Harris.

Investigators closed Yakima Avenue between Third and First Streets for about an hour to try and figure out who had a green light when the cars collided. 

Still no word on who was at fault.
