A Metro Police officer and a Las Vegas woman suffered minor injuries in a two-vehicle crash Saturday evening after the police cruiser entered an intersection on a red light, investigators said.
Authorities responded at 5:47 p.m. to the crash at Ann Road and Jones Boulevard in the northwest valley. Police said a 2004 Suzuki Forenza was northbound on Jones in the right travel lane as the officer's 2008 Ford Crown Victoria was eastbound on Ann in the right lane.
The police cruiser entered the intersection on a red light and was struck on the passenger's side by the Suzuki, police said.
The 40-year-old officer, whose name will be released later by Metro Police, and the front seat passenger in the Suzuki, identified as Rachel Marosko, 39, were treated at the scene for minor injuries. The driver of the Suzuki, Max Marosko, 40, of Las Vegas, and a 13-year-old passenger weren't injured.
The crash is under investigation by the Metro Police Accident Investigation Detail.
