CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa- Two Cedar Rapids police officers were hurt this (Thursday) morning while responding to an accident on Interstate 380.
Cedar Rapids Police Department Spokesman Greg Buelow says the accident happened shortly before 11 a.m. in the southbound lanes of Interstate 380, south of the 42nd Street interchange.
Buelow tells KCRG TV 9 the officers had been on the scene helping to direct traffic from an earlier crash when the SUV they were in was rear-ended by another vehicle.
The two officers were treated at local hospitals for minor injuries.
Buelow said officers have responded to multiple crashes due to the winter weather conditions. A tow ban is in effect in Linn County Thursday afternoon.
