A Duke University police officer was hurt early Monday in a car accident.

It happened around midnight at the intersection of Markham Avenue and Watts Street.

The officer's cruiser collided with a SUV. The violence of the crash sent the police car spinning into a nearby yard.

The SUV careened into a utility pole, snapping it.

Police said it appeared someone ran a stop sign and speed was a factor. The investigation was ongoing.
