Milltown Sgt. Donald Petry was on duty in the Middlesex County community when the crash occurred around 10:10 a.m. Monday. The cause of the accident was under investigation, but authorities say no other vehicles were involved.

Firefighters responded and soon extricated the 46-year-old officer from the department-owned SUV. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries and later released.

Petry has served with the Milltown police force for 24 years.
