The Bakersfield Police Department is looking for the driver of a vehicle who collided with a patrol car and fled Tuesday night.
At 10:40 p.m., a BPD officer was driving a marked patrol car going west near the intersection of East Brundage Lane and Cottonwood Road. A black Chevrolet sport-utility car was heading north on Cottonwood, running a red light and colliding with the BPD patrol car.
The officer was taken to a local hospital for minor to moderate injuries. He has since been discharged from the hospital and is at home recovering, police said.
BPD is asking anyone with information to call 327-7111.
