Ponca City Police Captain Randy Tyner reports that at 8:14 a.m. Thursday, a Ponca City Police officer notified the Communications Center that he and a passenger had been involved in a vehicle accident south of Edwards Avenue on 14th Street.

The police car, a 2005 Chevrolet Impala, was occupied by the driver, Patrolman Stetson Sisco, and front seat passenger Sgt. Dana Fisher.
