Coralville officer sustains minor injuries in crash

A Coralville police officer has sustained minor injuries after a semi-trailer hit his parked squad car along Interstate 80.

Police Chief Barry Bedford says Officer Jeffery Barkhoff was assisting other officers Thursday morning as they investigated a vehicle crash.  At some point a traveling semi hit Barkhoff's car.

Bedford says that emergency personnel extricated Barkhoff from his car.  He was taken to a hospital for minor injuries and was released.

Bedford says Barkhoff's car was positioned in a manner that allowed oncoming traffic to slow down and move to an inside lane.
