Two Coeur d’Alene police officers and three other people were all taken to Kootenai Health and treated for minor injuries after a collision Saturday evening.
The officers were driving near West Haycraft Avenue and U.S. 95 just before 7 p.m. when they saw another driver commit a traffic infraction, according to a news release. The officer driving the car activated the emergency lights and attempted to cross the highway to pull over the other car, the release said.
The police car was hit by another vehicle, occupied by three people, that was northbound on the highway, the release said.
Both cars were towed from the scene. The Idaho State Police is investigating the incident.
