5, Including Police Officer Hurt in 3-Car Crash on Kelly Drive

Five people, including a Philadelphia Police officer, were hurt in a multi-vehicle crash on Kelly Drive that may have been caused by the rain, officials said.

The unidentified officer was driving an unmarked Chevy Tahoe on Kelly Drive and Midvale Avenue in the East Falls section of the city Monday at 6:16 p.m. A yellow mini cooper and a gray Chevy Trailblazer were also traveling at the location at the time.

At least one of the vehicles lost control causing all three to collide. One of the vehicles then overturned, trapping two people inside, investigators said. Responders were eventually able to get them out.

Five people in all were hurt in the accident. One person is in critical condition while four others, including the officer, are stable.

Police have not revealed the official cause of the crash but told NBC10 rain and slick roads may have been a factor.

While the road wasn't completely shut down, at least one lane on Kelly Drive was blocked, leading to major backup.
