MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Police on Tuesday were still piecing together what happened Monday night when a Martinsburg Police Department cruiser and a car collided at the intersection of South Queen and West South streets.
Patrolman Jeffery Pepple, 27, of Martinsburg, was heading north on South Queen Street to back up another officer who was involved in a foot chase when the accident occurred at about 9 p.m., according to Martinsburg Police Sgt. John McMillen.
Malissa Neice, 32, of Martinsburg, was driving a dark red Plymouth Duster in which two children were riding at the time of the accident, according to McMillen.
Neice was coming onto South Queen Street from West South Street, he said.
Pepple, Neice, Nakesha Sheppard, 9 months, and Carl Snuffer, 4, were taken to City Hospital in Martinsburg, McMillen said.
All were treated and released, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
The children were in restraining seats, which Mc-Millen said protected them from more serious injuries.
