A UA Police Department patrol car collided with another car at the intersection of East Sixth Street and North Euclid Avenue Thursday.

The patrol car was responding to a priority call and was headed northbound on Euclid. The other vehicle involved was going westbound on Sixth.

Witnesses said the patrol car was facing a red light, but had its emergency lights and sirens activated when it paused briefly at the intersection and then proceeded north.

The witnesses said they thought the intersection was clear until the white passenger car skidded and collided with the patrol car.

No injuries were reported. The Tucson Police Department is investigating the crash.

A Red Camaro Z-28 was reported stolen from the Park Avenue Garage, 1140 N. Park Ave.

The vehicle was parked in a spot on the north side of the garage's third level at 2 p.m. When the driver returned at 4:55 p.m., the car was gone.

A student's blue Mongoose mountain bike with transparent grips was stolen from the north side of Biological Sciences West, 1040 E. Fifth St., on Wednesday.

The student said he used a cable lock to secure the bike to a rack at 7 a.m. When he returned at 3 p.m., the bike and lock were missing.

The bicycle is valued at $800.

Three bee hives were found in two trees at 1031 E. North Campus Dr. Oct. 15.

Police arrived and secured a perimeter. An exterminator responded and sprayed the hives. The exterminator then returned the next day to ensure that the bees were dead.
