He says both drivers were initially entrapped in their vehicles and once they were free — both were flown by medical helicopter to a Pittsburgh hospital.

The chief says they've requested a reconstruction team to come in and review the details of the crash itself.

He says this one is especially tough because it involves one of their own.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with both," said Jefferson Hills Police Chief Gene Roach. "As you can imagine because it involves a Jefferson Hills Officer, our officers are shook over this and they're rallying behind him and hope he can have a full recovery."

The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
