Brandon, Iowa (AP) – Authorities say an Iowa state trooper was injured when a woman’s car slid into the trooper’s sport utility cruiser.

The Iowa State Patrol says the accident occurred around 9:20 a.m. Sunday along Interstate 380 near Brandon. The patrol says the trooper had stopped to help another driver and was in his parked cruiser when it was struck by the car.

Patrol Sgt. Mike McCormick says the car driver, 22-year-old Brittany Anderson, of Charles City, had lost control of it while trying to pass a semitrailer in the winter weather.

Trooper Brad Bartz was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids for treatment of his minor injuries. The patrol says Anderson wasn’t hurt.
