ITHACA, N.Y.—A minor pile-up involving two cars and a motor home interrupted traffic for several hours on Hector Street near Vinegar Hill.

Police said that around 10:40 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 6, responded to a crash scene along with the Ithaca Fire Department and Bangs Ambulance. The initial crash was a single-car rollover incident with minor injuries, according to police.

However, during the investigation and about a half hour after the first crash, a motorhome attempted to get around an Ithaca Police Department vehicle that was at the scene. The motorhome hit the police car and then lodged on a curb, disabling the vehicle there.

There were no injuries in the motorhome incident, but the driver was cited for multiple infractions.
