A Las Vegas police officer had minor injuries Thursday evening after his vehicle collided with a sedan near McCarran International Airport.
Police were called about 5:15 p.m. to the crash, at East Tropicana Avenue and Kelch Drive, west of Paradise Road, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Richard Meyers said.
The crash was between a “motor unit” officer and a sedan-style car, he said. The officer was hospitalized with minor injuries and was in stable condition Thursday night.
Detectives do not believe that impairment was a factor in the crash. Tropicana was reopened Thursday night after briefly closed to traffic, Meyers said.
Further information was not immediately available.
