HARRISBURG — Officials say a police officer and a pedestrian were critically injured in a crash in a pursuit of a sport utility vehicle that led to the arrest of the driver.

The SUV driver was treated after the 6:30 p.m. Saturday crash and is in custody, Harrisburg police said.

The city police officer's vehicle crashed and flipped onto its roof, Cpl. Atah Akakpo-Marin told The (Harrisburg) Patriot-News. He remained in critical but stable condition on Sunday.

A female pedestrian struck during the crash also was critically injured, police said, and a police dog named Thor was injured.
