WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The Cass County Sheriff’s Office says a 29-year-old woman has been arrested after allegedly striking a West Fargo police car while the officer was conducting a traffic stop.

Authorities say the incident occurred early Sunday near the Red River Valley Fairgrounds. The sheriff’s office says the West Fargo officer suffered injuries that weren’t life threatening and was transported to a hospital.

Authorities aren’t releasing the officer’s current condition. The sheriff’s office says the West Fargo woman struck the squad car from behind, pushing it forward into the vehicle the officer had stopped.

Officials say the woman was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and cited for careless driving. North Dakota online court records don’t yet list charges against the woman.
