    A 63-year-old man has been pronounced dead after a crash in Rutland, Mass. involving three vehicles, including two police cruisers. 

    The crash, which occurred at around 6:30 p.m. on Friday, involved two police officers and a police dog from two Massachusetts towns, and left debris strewn across a road.

    Kevin St. Peters, of Worcester, was pronounced dead at the scene. His Ford Fusion crossed the double center line into oncoming traffic, hit one of the police cruisers and careened into the woods, according to police. That happened around 6:30 p.m.

    The two involved officers suffered from non-life threatening injuries and will be OK. Cooney, the K-9, wasn't injured, the Rutland Police Department said.
