A Shawnee County sheriff’s deputy and Topeka police officer were taken to a hospital early Tuesday after their cars collided on a bridge in Topeka.

Shawnee County Sheriff Herman Jones says the men’s injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Jones says that the deputy and officer were driving south on the bridge in response to another deputy’s request for assistance. When the call was canceled, the police car made a U-turn on the bridge and collided with the deputy’s car.

The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.
