Medford, Ore. -- A driver was cited for an improper left turn Wednesday evening, after colliding with a police officer's car.

An officer was driving in the left lane on West Main Street when a red car crossed in front of the officer to turn onto Washington Street.

The two cars collided, causing the red car to hit a parked truck and the police car to land in a resident's front yard.

There were no injuries reported.
