A Caledon police officer was unharmed after being struck by a vehicle while directing traffic at a crash, according to OPP.

Traffic was stopped in all directions at the Mayfield Road and Kennedy Road intersection as OPP responded to a two-vehicle crash on Friday.

Police say that while one officer was directing traffic, a vehicle entered the intersection, hit an officer and drove off.

OPP in the area stopped the driver a short distance away. A 53-year-old from Caledon was charged with careless driving and disobeying an officer directing traffic.

The officer was not injured, and the accused will answer his charges in court.
