Des Moines police say officers at fault in crashes

Des Moines police say three officers involved in two separate crashes have been found at fault and disciplined.

The Des Moines Register reported Tuesday the first crash happened April 7 at a four-way stop sign. In that case, officers Phil Terrones and Brandon Holtan were headed to a shots-fired report. Neither fully stopped at the signs and collided.

The other crash came April 27 when officer Mitchell Cameron was responding to assist another officer and ran a red light. Police say he hit another vehicle broadside.

Police say the officers have been disciplined but they declined to be specific because the matter is a personnel issue.

In general, Des Moines police Sgt. Jason Halifax say crashes of patrol cars in which officers are at fault usually result in suspensions.
