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.
