An early morning wreck left an Arlington County police officer with minor injuries.
Police say the officer was traveling on Clarendon Boulevard at about 3 a.m. Saturday when she approached a flashing yellow light at the intersection with N. Barton Street.
The officer proceeded through the flashing yellow, but at the same time a Jeep traveling on Barton Street ran through the flashing red, Arlington County Police Department spokesman Dustin Sternbeck told Arlnow.
The front of the officer’s cruiser was heavily damaged, and the impact caused the Jeep to flip on its side. The officer suffered minor injuries but did not need to go to the hospital. No other injuries were reported.
The driver of the Jeep was issued a ticket for a red light violation and was released, Sternbeck said.
