STORY COUNTY, Iowa — A Huxley police officer is off duty after he was injured when his squad car was rear-ended over the weekend.
The Iowa State Patrol said Officer Nick Swanson was responding to a report of cattle on Interstate 35 Sunday evening when it happened.
Swanson was on the 315th Street overpass driving slowly, with his emergency lights on, when a Nevada woman rammed into his police cruiser from behind.
Paramedics took Swanson to the hospital with minor injuries and he was released later that night.
The other driver, Kasi Stahl, 38, was taken to the Story County Jail and is charged with OWI.
The accident remains under investigation by the Iowa State Patrol.
