It happened earlier today at Third and Pierce.
Police say the officer was headed to Municipal Court in response to a potential fight.
That's when a truck stopped in front of him and the officer ended up rear-ending it.
Both people inside the truck, including a child, were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries
