The Rock Island County Sheriff's Department still is investigating a two-vehicle crash Monday in East Moline when police say a car driven by an 82-year-old man collided with an East Moline Police Department sports utility vehicle.|
The names of the drivers have not yet been released. Police said the East Moline man was treated at Genesis-Illini Medical Center for what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries, and the police officer sustained minor injuries.
The crash occurred at around 2:20 p.m. Monday when a 2005 Pontiac, driven by the older man, stopped at a stop sign at 25th Avenue and attempted to turn southbound onto 7th Street — into the path of the police SUV, a 2011 Ford F-150 that did not have a stop sign.
The oncoming police vehicle "was unable to avoid the collision and struck the driver's side of the Pontiac," the sheriff's department news release says.
