MANHATTAN, NY – Three people were seriously injured in a multi-vehicle collision in Chelsea Wednesday morning, including two NYPD officers. All three required hospitalization for treatment, but are expected to recover.
1010 WINS reports that the accident occurred at the intersection of West 25th Street and Ninth Avenue at approximately 8:45 a.m. on May 13. The police officers were apparently on their way to the scene of the construction accident at the USPS facility when the incident occurred. It is not clear what caused the collision or how many other individuals may have been involved, although police are investigating.
Both injured officers were taken to NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue for treatment, where they are listed in serious but stable condition. The other injured motorist, a civilian, was taken to Lenox Hill Hospital and is also in serious but stable condition.
