Officer, pedestrian hurt in West Baltimore car crash

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.
