GARY — A police officer was en route to an emergency call Tuesday afternoon when he turned the wrong way down a one-way street, colliding with another driver, the Lake County sheriff's department said this week.
Gary police officer Angel M. Lozano was responding to a call at 3:13 p.m. Tuesday when he turned east down Fourth Avenue near Lincoln Street, according to a crash report by the Lake County sheriff's department.
According to the report, Lozano had his lights and sirens activated when he turned east into a one-way, westbound traffic only lane.
The other driver, a 62-year-old Schererville resident, complained of minor injuries and was transported to the hospital. The Gary officer was not transported.
Both are expected to be OK, sheriff's spokesman Mark Back said.
