A Philadelphia Police cruiser responding to a call collided with a taxicab early Tuesday landing three people in the hospital.
The cars collided at the six-point intersection where N 56th street intersects with Haverford and Westminster avenues in West Philadelphia around 3 a.m. The female officer, the cabbie and a taxi passenger all suffered non-life-threatening aches and pains, said police.
The cruiser had its lights and siren on while responding to a report of a person with a gun at the time of the crash with the 215-Get-A-Cab taxi, said investigators.
