A Colorado Springs police officer driving a marked cruiser struck and injured a woman Friday night crossing Nevada Avenue in front of City Hall.

The woman was in a crosswalk when she was hit by the police car which was turning left onto northbound Nevada Avenue from Kiowa Street, police said. The crash was reported about 9:15 p.m.

The woman was treated for minor injuries at a local hospital, police said.

Police said the crash is under investigation.

"The officer will return to duty, but the accident will be investigated by the Major Accident Unit," Sgt. Joel Kern told Gazette news partner KKTV. "And if the officer is found to be at fault for the accident, the officer could face repercussions as far as a ticket, just like any other citizen would."
