EMMETT, Idaho (AP) - Authorities say a 51-year-old man driving a semitrailer who struck the vehicle of a Boise area police chief faces a charge of inattentive driving.

The Idaho Statesman reports (https://goo.gl/cn2nDL ) that Idaho State Police said Friday that Kenneth Myers of Kuna would be charged with the misdemeanor.

Emmett Police Chief Gary Scheihing and his police dog Roscoe were in a 2004 Ford Crown Victoria at a stoplight Thursday afternoon when a semitrailer struck the car from behind.

Police say Scheihing was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Roscoe was euthanized due to injuries sustained in the crash.

Myers was treated at a Boise hospital.

Idaho State Police said both men were wearing seat belts.
