(Harrisburg) -- Two people are recovering after being seriously injured after a police-involved crash in Harrisburg. Officer Daniel Peiper and bystander Selina Martin are both in Penn State Hershey Medical Center.
A hospital spokeswoman says Martin is in critical condition.
She says Peiper is being treated, but information on his condition is not being released, as it is part of an ongoing investigation.
A Harrisburg Police spokesman says Peiper's injuries are "serious," and Dauphin County prosecutors are handling the case.
The crash happened Saturday evening when police say Christopher Slaughter of Harrisburg was eluding officers.
Slaughter's vehicle apparently struck Peiper's police SUV, causing it to flip and land on Martin, who was on the sidewalk near Sixth and Forrest streets.
A police dog, named Thor, was also injured in the crash, and is expected to recover.
