A Clovis police squad car collided with another car at Ashlan and Winery avenues Thursday morning, injuring a police officer and the driver of the other vehicle.
The officer called in his own accident at 10:46 a.m., said Clovis police service officer Ty Wood.
The officer complained of pain, as did the driver of a Chevrolet Captiva SUV. The officer was taken to Clovis Community Medical Center and the other driver went to Saint Agnes Medical Center.
The accident happened in Fresno where the boundaries of both cities meet.
Never miss a local story.
The officer was on duty but was not responding to a call and his lights and siren were not on, Wood said.
The officer was driving eastbound on Ashlan, Wood said. The police car hit the rear of the Chevrolet, and the air bag of the police car deployed.
Because it happened in Fresno, Fresno police are investigating. The cause of the accident is under investigation.
