Original 1/9/19 at 10:58 PM:
On 1/9/19 at 9:27 p.m., Officers with the Patrol Division were dispatched to E Tudor Road between Baxter Road and Patterson Road in reference to a two vehicle head-on collision with injuries.

The preliminary investigation found that three vehicles were involved in the collision. A gray Jeep was traveling eastbound on Tudor Road when it sideswiped a black Chevy Imapala near the Baxter Road intersection and continued eastbound. The occupants of the Impala suffered minor non-life threatening injuries. The Jeep then drove into oncoming traffic through a turn-only lane at Tudor and Patterson. The Jeep struck a silver Subaru head-on. Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene. Neither vehicle contained passengers. Factors that may have led to the collision are under investigation. 

APD Traffic Investigators have arrived at the scene and have closed off the eastbound lane of Tudor Road at Baxter Road / Campbell Airstrip Road. The westbound lane of Tudor at Patterson Road is also closed. These closures are expected to last several hours. Please seek alternative routes.
