Responding New Orleans Officer Hurt in Crash


A New Orleans police officer responding to an emergency call collided with another vehicle Monday.

An NOPD representative said the officer was traveling up Galvez Street when another vehicle ran a stop sign and collided with the officer.

The crash happened near the intersection of Galvez and Lafitte streets.

The female driver of the vehicle involved wasn't cited because the accident involved a city vehicle and the case is automatically handed to the district attorney’s office.

The officer suffered a swollen wrist and cut to his arm and was treated for his injuries.

The officer said he was a little shaken up when he was asked if he was hurt.
