3 injured in Pride Parade accident in Boston

BOSTON (AP) — An elderly woman has been treated in an area hospital for injuries sustained when two police officers on motorcycles collided with each other.

Police say two on-duty officers responding to a call of an officer needing medical help ran into each other and hit a pedestrian during Saturday’s Pride Parade in Boston.

The elderly woman struck was watching the parade. All three people sustained minor injuries, and were taken to Massachusetts General Hospital as a precaution. The crash did not disrupt the parade.

An officer who was the recipient of the call was transported to an area hospital for a medical issue that was not life-threatening.
