TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A 10-year-old girl is one of three people who sustained nonlife-threatening injuries in a crash involving a Topeka Police Department patrol vehicle.

The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating the incident, which was reported to the Shawnee County Emergency Communications Center at 6:32 p.m. Saturday.
