The first video shows the cruiser turning on sirens and flash lights as it approached the intersection eastbound on Cook Road.

As the cruiser pulls into the intersection, where a red light has stopped eastbound traffic, but then turns green, it collides with a passing motor home and the officer goes to assist.

The second video from the dash of another cruiser approaching the intersection moments later on eastbound Cook Road, shows the cruiser, lights flashing and sirens sounding, enter the intersection and collide with the motor home in the outside northbound lane of the bypass as the light turns to green.

The crash report was not available Thursday morning, but a run sheet indicates the first call for service came in at 7:22 a.m. on an officer-involved crash.

A post after the crash on Tuesday on the department’s Facebook page showed a picture of the cruiser and a message:

“A Lebanon Officer was responding to a possible structure fire when he was involved in a motor vehicle crash at the intersection of ST RT 48 and Cook Rd.

The crash remained under investigation.
