A Waterloo regional police vehicle was involved in a collision Thursday afternoon that shut down a section of University Avenue West in Waterloo.

The WRPS cruiser had damage to its front-end and what appeared to be a bumper wedged into the front grill.

The officer who was behind the wheel was not hurt.

Police said the driver of the other car, a male from Waterloo, was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.

The collision closed University Avenue West at Hazel Street for three hours but has since reopened.

Police said their Traffic Services Unit is investigating the crash.
