WARNER ROBINS -- A city police officer was responding to an emergency call Thursday when the car was involved in an accident, a sheriffs deputy said.

The police vehicle struck the side rear of the pickup, Salter said. Both drivers were taken to Houston Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries, he said.
