A man has been charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated after police say he struck an IMPD officer. On the night of February 7, 2019, an IMPD officer was traveling north on Thursday night on North Raceway Road, near West Washington Street in his marked police vehicle, when he was struck by another vehicle after it crossed the center line. The police officer only suffered minor injuries and was transported to Methodist Hospital for treatment. The driver of the vehicle that struck the police officer had been charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
