Provincial Police have a frightening reminder of the dangers that emergency responders face every day.

A Napanee OPP cruiser was struck while an officer was responding to a separate collision on the 401 west near Odessa as the freezing rain poured down early Thursday morning.

Fortunately no one was inside the cruiser at the time, but the tractor trailer driver was taken to hospital with minor injuries. It's not clear whether any charges will be laid.
