Shortly after 8 a.m., a St. Petersburg Police Motorcycle Traffic Enforcement Officer stopped a westbound car on Gandy Blvd near 4th Street.
As he was standing at the driver's side window handing over the citation, a Camry slowed down to pass them but a commercial box truck was unable to slowdown and crashed into the Camry. The impact pushed the Camry forward and clipped the officer.
The officer suffered a minor injury that didn't require hospitalization. The driver of the Camry was transported to the hospital with non- life-threatening injuries.
This highlights the importance of slowing down and moving over when you see law enforcement or emergency vehicles on the side of the road.
