Oneonta police are investigating a Friday morning accident involving one of its cars and a taxi, Oneonta police said. The taxi driver was the only person injured. She was treated for head injuries at A. O. Fox Hospital and released, Oneonta Sgt. Douglas Brenner said. The accident occurred at 1:42 a.m., he said.
According to Brenner, the police car was traveling west on Main Street and was turning left, with emergency lights on, but siren off, on the way to a report of a fight at the Trailways bus terminal, when the accident occurred.
The police car was being driven by officer Joe Tiemann, 28, with officer Derrick Kruser, 23, as passenger. The All Star Taxi vehicle was being driven by Maryanne McCoy, 49, of Schenevus, and there were no passengers, Brenner said.
The cab was traveling south on Ford Avenue, and the two vehicles met at the intersection of Main Street and Ford, he said.
No tickets have been issued and witnesses are still being interviewed to determine what happened, he said. Another car was dispatched to the bus stop but the incident had broken up by the time officers got there, he said.
