BUCKEYE, Ariz. (AP) — A Buckeye police sergeant has been injured after a crash with a man who's suspected of driving while intoxicated, authorities said Sunday.

They said the sergeant was on duty Saturday night in his fully marked patrol vehicle when the crash occurred around 10:20 p.m.

Police said the sergeant plus the driver and a passenger in the suspect vehicle all were transported to the hospital.

The unidentified sergeant was treated and released and is recovering from his injuries at home.

The driver and passenger in the suspect vehicle remain hospitalized with injuries not believed to be life threatening.

According to police, the driver also has warrants for his arrest out of Arizona and California and will be booked into jail on numerous charges once he’s discharged from the hospital.

Police did not immediately release the name, age and hometown of the suspect driver.
