An Elkhart County police vehicle was involved in a two-vehicle crash Monday in Goshen.

Sheriff’s Capt. Jim Bradberry said the collision happened at 4:54 p.m. at the intersection of Pike and Second streets.

No one was injured in the crash, according to Bradberry. Damage was estimated between $5,000 and $10,000 to both vehicles.

Bradberry said no disciplinary action has been taken against Kuntu at this point. He indicated the Sheriff’s Department’s driving review board will assess the incident sometime in July.
