CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -  Another CMPD officer has been involved in a traffic accident while on duty.

It happened on LaSalle Street late Thursday night.

It appears an SUV ran into the back of the police car.

Both the officer and the driver of the SUV were taken to the hospital.

We're told their injuries are minor.

This is the third officer involved crash in Mecklenburg County in recent weeks.

In that case, witnesses say the officer was going 90 miles an hour.
