CAMDEN, Del.-  Delaware State Police are investigating a crash in Camden that involved a state police vehicle.
 
Police say it happened around 7:15 a.m. Wednesday on US 13 at the intersection of Old North Road.

According to police, a 27-year-old trooper was driving southbound on US 13 with his emergency lights and siren activated.  A pickup truck, driven by 39-year-old Alice Harmon of Dover, was in a turn lane on Old North Road. Another car, driven by 46-year-old Lisa Locey of Magnolia, was in also waiting to turn at the stop light.

According to police, the traffic light on US 13 turned red as the police car approached the intersection. The traffic light for both turning vehicles turned green  so they proceeded to cross the southbound lanes of US 13. That's when police say the police car hit the pickup truck. They say the truck then spun, and hit the other car.

The trooper was responding to assist another trooper in Woodside that requested immediate assistance.  He was transported by EMS to Kent General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries where he was treated and released.
 
Harmon was transported by EMS and admitted to the Kent General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. A passenger in the truck, Robert Silver 41 of Harrington, was driven to Kent General Hospital by a co-worker and released with minor injuries.
 
Locey was transported by EMS to Kent General Hospital with minor injuries and released.
 
All operators and passengers were properly restrained with their seatbelts.  Alcohol is not a factor in this collision.
 
The Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this incident.  US 13 South DuPont Highway southbound traffic was impacted for approximately three hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
