Video shows Waite Park police squad involved in crash

The incident happened around 5:45 p.m. Monday.

A minor crash involving a police vehicle in Waite Park was caught on camera. 

Waite Park Police Department released a 13-second video clip that shows the driver of a Subaru Outback run a red light and get broadsided by a semi. The impact spun the Subaru around and caused it to skid into the front of the police vehicle. 

A 60-year-old St. Cloud woman and a 6-year-old girl were in the Subaru. They were treated for minor injuries at the scene and released, though the driver was cited for running the red light. 

The semi driver and the police officer were not injured. 

The crash happened at 5:46 p.m. at the intersection of 2nd Avenue South and 2nd Street South.
