DOVER, Del. (AP) - Dover Police say an officer suffered a minor hand injury when a fleeing truck hit him after a traffic stop. Police are still looking for the driver.

Authorities say the officer stopped 25-year-old John E. Pauley of Milford about 9:30 a.m. Friday for running a stop sign at Independence Boulevard and Lamplighter Lane.

Police say as officers tried to arrest Pauley after learning he was wanted for a violation of probation, Pauley sped off in his truck, hitting the officer’s hand.

Police have obtained warrants charging Pauley with assault and numerous traffic violations. He was last seen driving a gray, unregistered 2001 Chevrolet 2500 truck.
