Icy conditions to blame for string of accidents involving police cruiser on I-271

MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) -

Icy conditions to blame for three accidents on the I-271 bridge in Mayfield Heights Wednesday morning.

All three accidents happened in the northbound lanes around 6:30AM.

A pick-up truck lost control and crashed into the wall. Another pick-up truck tried to avoid that crash, and ended up actually flipping over the bridge, landing on Mayfield Road. 

A police officer stopped to assist the accident victims and as he was walking to the scene, a car slammed into his cruiser.

The officer was now injured, but the cruiser is totaled.

Luckily, none of the other drivers were seriously injured.
