Officials say the officer's patrol car collided with another vehicle on Southern Boulevard and South Dixie Highway. The auto accident reportedly happened just before 1 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon.
In the video, the officer can be seen waiting at a traffic light, when a Honda Accord cuts into the intersection, causing the two cars to collide.
Both vehicles suffered extensive front-end damage and officials are still investigating who had the right of way, however, there are early reports the police officer has been found at-fault for the car wreck.
Fortunately, no one suffered serious injuries. The intersection was closed for about an hour in both directions before both cars were towed away.
