HUNTINGTON, WV -

A two vehicle accident involving a police vehicle occurred in Huntington, WV Thursday evening.

According to dispatchers, it happened in the area of 8th St. and 7th Ave. at 7:54 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7.

According to responders, a Huntington Police Department patrolman was responding to a call traveling west on 7th Ave. with his lights on, when a van ran a red light and collided with the police vehicle, causing the van to go onto a sidewalk near the 8th St. viaduct.

Dispatchers say the patrolman, as well as three people inside the van, were all taken to the hospital with only minor injuries.

The intersection in the area of the accident was shut down due to leakage, but has since re-opened.

Charges may be pending on the driver of the van.

The crash remains under investigation.
