The first accident happened just around 9 a.m. at Webster and Maple streets when a Manchester Police cruiser  headed north on Maple Street was struck by a vehicle heading west on Webster Street, which failed to stop at the light. That vehicle struck the front of the cruiser, knocking down a sign, and going across a lawn and through a fence before coming to rest in in the back of that property. No one was transported to the hospital but both officers in the cruiser were reportedly shaken up.

Both vehicles had to be towed.

A disabled van was towed from the scene of an accident involving a Manchester Police SUV, which was responding to an earlier accident involving a police cruiser.
