CICERO, N.Y. (AP) - New York State Police say a trooper and a 27-year-old man are recovering from minor injuries suffered when their vehicles collided on a Syracuse-area road.

Officials say Trooper Robert Vanjohnson was on patrol in a marked state police car when he attempted to stop a vehicle for speeding in the Onondaga County town of Cicero around 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Police say the trooper entered into the path of car being driven by Ryan Cranker of Syracuse. His car hit the trooper’s cruiser on the driver’s-side door, causing the patrol car to end up in a ditch.

Vanjohnson was taken to University Hospital in Syracuse for treatment of minor head injuries. Cranker was treated at St. Joseph’s Hospital for minor head and neck injuries.

Troopers say their investigation is continuing.
