COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado Springs police officer driving a marked cruiser hit a woman in a crosswalk in front of City Hall.

Authorities say the officer was making a left turn when he struck the woman Friday night.

The woman was treated at a hospital for minor injuries.

Sgt. Joel Kern tells KKTV-TV that the unidentified officer will return to duty, but the accident will be investigated.

Kern says the officer could be ticketed if he’s found to be at fault.
