A Glendora Police officer received minor injuries when he was involved in a collision Wednesday morning.
The officer was responding with a second police unit to a call when the collision happened in the intersection of Lorraine Avenue and Foothill Blvd. at 7:40 a.m. The officer's cruiser was broadsided by a car traveling northbound. The officer was transported to an area hospital for a complaint of soreness, but has been released, said Lieutenant Jamie Caldwell of Glendora Police.
The officers were traveling east with lights and sirens, en route to a reported injury collision in the 1300 block of East Foothill Blvd. Both police cruisers cleared the intersection. Northbound traffic in the left turn lane and the No. 1 lane was stopped, but a northbound car in the second lane moved through the intersection and struck the police cruiser, Caldwell said.
The female driver was uninjured in the crash.
"We're not sure if the person did not hear, or see the lights and sirens. Everyone in the intersection had stopped, though. She was very concerned about the officer," Caldwell said.
The police cruiser received moderate damage in the crash, while the woman's car received moderate to major damage.
The original call the officers were responding to turned out to not be an injury collision, or a collision at all. The vehicle was merely disabled, Caldwell said.
