A Chula Vista police officer was injured when a patrol car collided with another vehicle and landed in a resident’s yard early Wednesday.

The collision happened at 4th and Moss at 5 a.m.

The officer was going northbound on 4th transporting a prisoner to the jail. As the patrol car crossed Moss, it collided with a vehicle heading eastbound on Moss.

Chula Vista Capt. Gary Wedge told NBC 7 San Diego the details on how the collision happened are still unknown.

The prisoner was taken to a different hospital Wedge said.
