A police cruiser with lights flashing and sirens blasting was involved in a collision on its way to a call in Barrie Thursday evening.

The cruiser was entering an intersection at Tiffin Street and Essa Road around 6:30 p.m. when police say another vehicle hit it.

The officer driving the cruiser was uninjured, while the Special Constable in the passenger seat suffered a minor injury.

The other driver, who was uninjured, was charged with not slowing down for an approaching emergency vehicle.

Police say the cruiser will need repairs, likely one rear tire and the axle.
