GRAND ISLAND, Nebraska — Grand Island police say a 42-year-old officer was injured when his cruiser collided with a minivan.

The accident occurred around 6:50 a.m. Tuesday on East Highway 30. The Hall County Sheriff's Office says Officer Wesley Tjaden (JAY'-dehn) was driving west when his marked cruiser collided with an eastbound minivan that was turning left to enter a business parking lot.

Tjaden was taken to St. Francis Medical Center for treatment and soon was released. Sheriff's Sgt. Quinn Webb says the van driver wasn't injured but was cited for failure to yield.

The Sheriff's Office handled the accident investigation because a police officer was involved.
