Three vehicles were involved in the crash - an SUV, a Malibu and a police cruiser. It's unclear how the crash happened or who was at fault. 

"I had happened to open the window and look and see a Cadillac Escalade in my yard," said Lamont Washington, resident.

A female police officer was taken to the hospital, as well as the female driver of the SUV, officials said.

The officer remains hospitalized and is in good condition.

The driver of the SUV, a 48-year-old woman, was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. She was treated and released.

As for the fire, no one was injured.

The fire was contained to an upstairs bedroom, fire officials said. The damage to the home is estimated at $25,000 for window replacement, drywall damage and rewiring.
