An officer with the Brookfield (WI) Police department was briefly hospitalized after his squad car was struck during a traffic pursuit on an interstate freeway on Monday night.
According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the driver—identified only as a 23-year-old man from Madison—was traveling over 90 miles per hour at one point during the pursuit.
An officer attempted to effect a traffic stop at roadside, and during that process the driver accelerated toward the officer's vehicle after initially stopping.
The officer who was struck was transported to a nearby hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and released.
The driver of the vehicle was taken into custody without further incident.
Charges are pending.
