Buffalo officer crashes into pole on Dorrance Avenue

A Buffalo police officer was involved in an accident that occurred just after 9:30 a.m. Wednesday in the vicinity of the 400 block of Dorrance Avenue.

Investigators say it appears the patrol vehicle was responding to a call and coming around the side of a building, when another vehicle going in the wrong direction came at the patrol vehicle in a head-on direction.

The officer swerved to avoid that vehicle and struck a pole, investigators said.

The officer was transported to Erie County Medical Center to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
