JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A Jacksonville Sheriff’s officer suffered minor injuries when her cruiser was hit by another vehicle while responding to an emergency call.

The incident happened Tuesday night.

Sheriff’s officials told local media that the officer and the other driver were both taken to a hospital. The officer was treated and released. The status of the other driver wasn’t immediately available.

Authorities say the officer had her emergency lights on and had stopped at an intersection to wait for traffic to stop when the car hit her. It wasn’t known whether the weather was a factor in the crash.

The traffic homicide division is investigating, which is standard policy when an officer is involved in a crash.
