A St. Thomas Police officer suffered minor injuries to his hand Sunday after his cruiser was struck T-bone style by a woman running a red light.
The crash happened just before 10 a.m., when the marked police cruiser was heading eastbound on Talbot St. and was struck entering the intersection at First Ave.
St. Thomas Police Const. Jeff De Leeuw says the officer was on general patrol and not responding to a call when the crash happened.
A 34-year-old St. Thomas woman heading north on First Ave. went through the red light, striking the cruiser on the front passenger door.
She was not injured and has since been charged with failing to stop at a red light which carries a $325.00 fine and 3 demerit points.
