A police officer was injured Monday morning in a Racine car accident.

According to officials with the Wisconsin State Patrol, officer Gary Kovacs was injured in a car accident at the intersection of 90th Street and Durand Avenue shortly before 7:00 a.m. Police say Kovacs was driving through the intersection when 21 year-old John Matthews, of Leola, Pennsylvania, who was traveling eastbound on Durand, ran a red light. Matthews’ 2003 Saab collided with Kovacs’ squad car.

According to Racine Police Chief Sean Marschke, Matthews sustained minor injuries to his legs in the accident. He was transported by ground accident to Saint Catherine’s Hospital, where he was treated and released. Matthews was not injured in the accident, Marschke said.

The Wisconsin State Patrol investigated the accident. The South Shore Fire Department assisted with the initial response.
