A police officer was cited for causing a two-vehicle crash that left himself, a second officer and two others injured on Route 173 in Antioch Thursday afternoon.

The incident happened around 2:40 p.m. Thursday at Route 173 and Eagle Ridge Drive in Antioch.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office was requested to conduct an investigation into the crash.

An Antioch police squad, driven by a 21-year-old Antioch officer, was traveling northbound on Eagle Ridge Drive.

Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli said a preliminary investigation shows the driver of the squad car was attempting to turn westbound on Route 173.

The officer turned left and was struck by an eastbound Kia Sorento, driven by a 65-year-old man from Antioch.

The driver of the Kia and his 13-year-old passenger, also an Antioch resident, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
