A Minden Police officer is okay today after the patrol unit he was driving was hit by another vehicle Wednesday.
According to Lt. Willie Shed, Sgt. Seth Young was traveling south on Hwy. 371 (Sibley Road) when witnesses say a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox, driven by Juliuana Mitchell of the 200 block of Barbara Drive, ran through a redlight striking the patrol car.
"Sgt. Young was transporting two youth to Ware Youth Center in Coushatta when the accident happened," Shed said. "The youth were transported to Minden Medical Center, as was a two-year-old child who was in the Equinox."
Shed said he believes all were treated and released. Investigation is continuing into the accident, and, according to Shed, charges are pending.
