PHOENIX (AP) - Two people suffered minor injuries after a Phoenix police motorcycle officer collided with a car blocking freeway traffic.

Police Sgt. Trent Crump says the crash happened Sunday shortly before 5 a.m. on Interstate 17 at Union Hills Drive.

Authorities say Arizona Department of Public Safety troopers were already en route because of a report of a vehicle blocking the northbound lanes when the collision occurred.

Both the driver and the officer were taken to the hospital in stable condition.

I-17 northbound lanes remained closed for about five hours.
