ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. A Lakeville police officer was involved in an accident Saturday morning near the intersection of U.S. 31 and Quinn Road.
The officer initially pulled over a pick-up truck for a traffic violation.
But when the officer let the driver go, the driver had another violation.
So the officer tried to stop the truck again.
That's when the driver allegedly slammed the breaks while the police car was approaching.
The officer was unable to avoid a collision with the truck and was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
