Upper Arlington: Police say six people were killed and an officer was injured when a car and a cruiser collided at an intersection just north of Ohio`s capital overnight.

The head of the local police union, Jason Pappas, says an officer from suburban Upper Arlington was responding to a robbery report when the crash occurred at an intersection early Wednesday. Pappas says the officer apparently had his vehicle`s police lights and siren on at the time.

Pappas says six people in the other vehicle died, including a small child. He says the officer was being treated for a serious head injury at a hospital but was in stable condition.
