St. Cloud police officer injured in crash
A St. Cloud police officer was injured Friday after the officer was involved in a traffic crash.
At about 1:55 p.m. the officer was responding to an emergency call for service. While in route to the scene, the officer was stuck by another motorist at the intersection of 13th Street and Commerce Drive. The officer was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.
Sections of Commerce Center Drive at the intersection of 13th Street will be closed for an undermined amount of time. Avoid area due to heavy traffic delays, police officials said. Alternative routes are as follows: Traffic traveling southbound on Commerce Center Blvd will be diverted through the Hess Gas Station to 13th Street. Traffic from 13th Street trying to turn north on to Commerce Center needs to continue on 13th Street. Travelers northbound on Sgt. Graham Drive need to make an east or westbound turn.
This is an open traffic crash investigation. Additional information will be released at later time when it becomes available.
