Two Scottsdale police officers were conducting a roadside investigation regarding an unrelated traffic stop on Scottsdale Road just north of McDowell Road at 1:12 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, according to a police report.

Police say one officer was standing on the sidewalk while the officer who initiated the stop was seated in his patrol vehicle conducting a computer records check. Both, per a report, were operating fully-marked Scottsdale police patrol SUVs and both had their emergency lights activated.

At this time, a northbound sedan, which Ms. King drove, collided with the rear-end of the unoccupied Scottsdale police SUV, pushing it forward into the police SUV occupied by the original stop officer, according to a report.

Police say the officer was transported to an area hospital with non-incapacitating injuries, where he was treated and released.
