Five Gilbert officers were involved in a multi-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 60 Tuesday morning.

Officer Carrick Cook with the Department of Public Safety said a car passing a semi clipped the semi and spun out of control, hitting two Gilbert police cars.

Gilbert police spokesman Sgt. Jesse Sanger said five detectives from the Criminal Apprehension Team were in the two police vehicles.

Cook said the officers' injuries appear to be minor. The driver of the other car had serious injuries but is expected to survive.

Sanger said the officers were on-duty and were returning to Gilbert from a special operation. Details on that operation won't be released, according to Sanger.

ADOT reports eastbound U.S. 60 is closed at milepost 246.
