An accident happened in the afternoon of Nov. 30 when a northbound white van turned in front of a southbound Glendale police car at the intersection of 67th and Glendale Avenues. Police say that the force of the collision caused the van to move into the southwest corner of the intersection and onto the sidewalk where it struck a man and a woman. The van knocked the woman into a parking lot where she was then hit by a second vehicle.
The 60-year-old woman was taken to the hospital, where she later died. The man who was also struck by the van was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries, and both the police officer and the driver of the van were injured in the crash and were transported to the hospital for treatment. Police say that there is no indication that the officer, who was responding to a service call, had the vehicle's lights and sirens on.
