Two people were injured Friday morning in a collision in Gering between a marked Police patrol car and a City of Gering vehicle.

According to Scotts Bluff County Sheriff Mark Overman, emergency personnel were called to the accident at the intersection of 10th Street and M Street at 7:42 a.m.

Overman says evidence indicates patrol unit was northbound on 10th Street responding to an alarm call with lights and siren activated as it entered the intersection, striking a westbound City pickup on the left side, causing the pickup driver to be ejected. Investigators say witnesses stated the light was green for east-west traffic on M Street.   

The driver of the pickup was transported to Regional West Medical Center by Valley Ambulance, where he is being treated for non-life threatening injuries, while the Gering Police Officer was also transported to RWMC by another Gering PD Officer with injuries reported as minor.

The Scotts Bluff County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the accident at the request of the Gering Police Department.
