An early morning accident Thursday in the 1500 block of North Dixie Boulevard sent an Odessa police officer to the hospital.
According to the accident report, 26-year-old officer Kenneth Bordman was responding to a disturbance call at around 1:47 a.m. when he switched from the left lane, into the right lane, Odessa spokeswoman Cpl. Sherrie Carruth said.
A red Chevy Silverado driven by 18-year-old Luis D. Amancio collided with Bordman's patrol car as Bordman was switching into the right lane.
Bordman was taken to Medical Center Hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and was released Thursday, Carruth said. Amancio and his passenger, Alyssa Marie Herrera, were not transported.
Amancio was cited for failure to control speed to avoid an accident. Bordman was cited for failure to drive in a single marked lane.
