What is a Silent Witness and how do you become one?

Three people including two Phoenix police officers were injured and transported to the hospital after a rollover collision in West Phoenix early Sunday morning, officials said.

Shortly after 4 a.m., a collision involving an officer and a civilian was reported near 35th and Glendale avenues, said Phoenix Fire Capt. Larry Subervi. 

Witnesses told police that a police Tahoe was traveling northbound on 35th Avenue when the second vehicle turned left onto Glendale Avenue and the cars collided, causing the Tahoe to roll onto its roof. 

The officer in the crash, a 32-year-old male, and the civilian, a 31-year-old male, were transported to a nearby trauma center with serious injuries. The officer remains hospitalized. 

Subervi said another officer, a 30-year-old female, injured her hand while she helped pull her fellow officers out of his vehicle. She was treated and released. 

The male officer has worked with the Phoenix Police Department for two years, according to Sgt. Mercedes Fortune, a Phoenix police spokeswomen. 

 Police said impairment is unknown at this time.

The intersection of 35th Avenue and Glendale was closed for a few hours early Sunday while the investigation was ongoing.
