TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Shawnee County sheriff's deputy and Topeka police officer were taken to a hospital early Tuesday after their cars collided on a bridge in Topeka.

Shawnee County Sheriff Herman Jones says the men's injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Jones told WIBW that the deputy and officer were driving south on the bridge in response to another deputy's request for assistance. When the call was canceled, the police car made a U-turn on the bridge and collided with the deputy's car.

The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.
