HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Huntsville police are investigating following a crash Tuesday morning involving an officer.

According to police, the crash happened around 2:00 a.m. at the intersection of Jordan Lane and University Drive.

An HPD officer was stopped heading north on Jordan Lane, waiting to turn west onto University Drive.

Utility crews were still at the scene around 6:00 a.m. fixing a crosswalk sign that was damaged during the wreck.
