Red-light runner hits Spokane police car

A Spokane police officer was treated for minor injuries after a driver ran a flashing red light and crashed into his patrol car early this morning.

Officer Chris Bode was taken to a hospital as a precautionary measure, where he was treated for a bump on his head and neck pain.

Bode was westbound on West Second Avenue with a flashing yellow light when he entered the South Monroe Street intersection about 2:10 a.m. and was struck by a southbound vehicle.

The  westbound car had a flashing red light, which requires drivers to stop. Neither speed nor alcohol was a factor, police said. The offending driver, whose name has not been released, was cited for failing to stop for a flashing red signal. The driver was not injured.

Bode was involved in another collision in May in which a teenager being chased by police allegedly rammed his patrol car.
