LYNN, Mass. — Two Lynn police officers were injured, one of them seriously, after the police cruisers they were driving collided at an intersection at around 12:45 yesterday morning as they responded to an emergency call, police said.

Officer Gregory Leblanc had to be extricated from his vehicle by rescuers using the Jaws of Life metal-cutting machine. He was flown to Brigham and Women's Hospital with what police called "significant injuries."
