LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Nebraska state trooper has been injured in a collision on the southwest side of Lincoln.

Authorities say the accident occurred about 8:15 p.m. Wednesday. Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner told the Lincoln Journal Star (https://bit.ly/14zlgn8 ) that the trooper was headed north on U.S. Highway 77 when his cruiser struck a vehicle that was turning east off the highway onto Old Cheney Road.

Wagner says the trooper was released after treatment at a Lincoln hospital. The other driver wasn’t hurt but was cited for careless driving.
