We wish one of our officers well as he is recovering from minor injuries after the squad car he was driving was t-boned at the intersection of Hackett and North streets around 6:30 p.m. (Sunday).
Our officer was traveling northbound on Hackett Street when the accident occurred. Witnesses reported the driver of the other vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed on North Street before the accident occurred.
The driver is in custody and is being evaluated for a possible operating while intoxicated charge; the Rock County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the accident.
