MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - A 26-year-old man has been cited for his first alleged operating while intoxicated offense after a two-vehicle crash in Middleton that involved one of the police department’s cruisers.

The Middleton Police Dept. shut down Century Ave., between Donna Drive and Nightingale Lane, early Tuesday afternoon because of the crash that occurred around 11:50 a.m. near the High Road intersection.

The Middleton Police Dept. posted on Facebook, saying two department employees, as well as the driver of the other vehicle, were taken to the hospital for evaluation as a precaution.
