The second incident at 8:13 a.m. involved a patrol vehicle that had responded to the scene. Police were blocking off two lanes of westbound Craig Road to investigate the accident when a female driver traveling eastbound crossed the median into the opposite direction of traffic, narrowly missing an officer on foot and hit a patrol car.

There were no injuries sustained in the second accident and westbound Craig reopened about 9:30 a.m.
