SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - A hit and run suspect is in custody after allegedly hitting a police vehicle.

A Mishawaka police officer was driving south on Eddy Street at 1:55 a.m. Thursday when a pickup truck heading east on Sorin Street pulled out in front of the squad car and hit the vehicle.

“So apparently, what it appeared is he didn’t stop at the stop sign, pulled right out in front of them, and they collided. It sounds like the driver tried to flee on foot and then was later recovered,” said Mishawaka Police Department Sgt. Richard Freeman.

A passenger in the pickup and the Mishawaka police officer both reported minor injuries.
