Share this post

A Merrillville police officer was treated and released for injured sustained in a motor-vehicle accident as he was responding to a call Saturday night, authorities say. A spokesperson for the Lake County Sheriffs Department says the officer was heading south on Taft Street with emergency lights on when he swerved to avoid hitting a vehicle that pulled out from 65th Avenue, and the police car jumped the curb, hit a tree and flipped.
