LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- A Lafayette police officer is okay after a crash on the way to an overdose call.

Police say the officer had his lights and sirens on driving down Teal Road between 9th and 18th streets. They say another car pulled into the officer's path.

The crash spun the squad car into a utility pole, toppling it.

Neither driver reported any serious injuries and no citations have been issued.

Police say Duke Energy is still on the scene working to fix the utility pole. They ask drivers to avoid the area while those repairs are underway.
