An on duty officer was injured when his marked patrol car flipped over in southeast Charlotte Sunday.

According to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police, the single-vehicle crash occurred around 5:02 a.m. in the 3000 block of North Sharon Amity Road near Albemarle Road. 

Police said the officer was driving on North Sharon Amity Road and tried to make a U-turn. The officer then struck a tree in the median and the vehicle  flipped over, according to police.
