2 MPD cruisers collide, 3 officers injured

Two Memphis Police cruisers collided at the corner of Peabody and Belvedered around 9:40 on Friday night, sending three officers to The Med.

"It was mayhem," said neighbor Drew Long. "We had to ask permission to even be granted onto our block." 
The scene on Friday night included a sea of flashing lights and two severely crunched police cars.
More than two dozen additional cruisers showed up when fellow officers heard the news.
"There was a police car right up here in the tree, and another here on the street that hit the traffic pole," said Long.
Police on the scene Friday night said the two cars were traveling in opposite directions, responding to the same call.

All three officers involved were injured. A female officer was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
