Officer Receives Minor Injuries in Crash

There were a fair amount of crashes this holiday weekend. One involved a Duluth Police Officer who was stopped at a stop sign and was rear-ended.  Fortunately he only had minor injuries and returned to work after being checked out at a hospital.  We have had many officers injured in crashes over the years by simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Hopefully the officer is feeling good and the other driver has insurance so the City will not have to absorb the cost of the repairs....

  1. Always sorry to hear someone got hurt. You have a dangerous job and it's a wonder more officers aren't hurt on the job fighting with people to have them listen to them. It's a very physical job and requires mental stamina as well.
