A Baltimore police officer and a pedestrian were hurt Wednesday evening after the officer's car hit a pole in West Baltimore, police said.

Around 7:30 p.m., the officer's car struck a pole near the intersection of West Franklin Street and Edmondson Avenue and the officer suffered minor injuries, according to a statement from Detective Jeremy Silbert.

The pedestrian, who was struck either by the car or debris at the scene, was taken to a local hospital to be treated for injuries that are not expected to be life threatening, he said.

The Baltimore Police Crash Team is investigating the accident. Silbert said it was not immediately clear whether slick streets contributed to the crash.
