MESA, AZ (CBS5) -

A three-vehicle injury collision that involved a Mesa police cruiser closed three lanes of westbound U.S. Highway 60 in the East Valley on Tuesday morning.

One person was trapped and had to be extricated from the wreckage near the Val Vista Drive exit in Mesa about 8 a.m., according to an Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman.

The Mesa police officer was taken to a hospital with minor injuries, the spokesman said.

DPS closed the HOV lane and two adjacent lanes until measurements and evidence could be obtained, the spokesman said.

No other information was immediately available.
