BELFAST, Maine (AP) - Authorities are investigating a crash involving a police cruiser in Belfast, Maine.

The Waldo County Sheriff’s office says Sgt. Matthew Cook of the Belfast Police Department was driving a marked police SUV Monday evening when he saw a car in the oncoming lane commit a traffic violation. Cook activated his emergency lights and tried to make a U-turn to pursue that car. A motorcycle that had been following the cruiser then crashed into the driver’s side of the cruiser as it was making the turn.

The driver, 58-year-old Mark Belleisle of Swanville, suffered broken bones and was hospitalized in stable condition.
