GREENSBORO, N.C. — Police said an officer was responding to a wreck when he collided with a van Friday in Greensboro.

Greensboro police spokeswoman Susan Danielson said the officer, whose identity has not been released, was driving east on West Vandalia Road when he collided with a green Chevrolet Astro that was traveling north across the intersection at South Holden Road.

The patrol car’s sirens and lights were both activated, Danielson said.

Witnesses told police that the officer stopped at the intersection and honked his horn several times before attempting to cross.

The patrol car was struck in the right rear door. Danielson said the officer was not seriously injured.

The van spun out after the collision and came to rest in the middle of the intersection. Danielson said the driver, who has not been identified, was taken by ambulance to the hospital.

Police are investigating the incident.
