A female Bensalem police officer was injured in a car crash with a suspected drunk driver Sunday night, police said.

A van crashed into the Lower Southampton Township police officer's cruiser about 7:30 p.m. The officer, whose name was not released, was taken to Aria Health-Torresdale hospital with pain in her back and neck, according to the Associated Press.


An open beer bottle was found inside the van, operated by a woman in her 50s. She was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

The woman, whose identity has not been released, has yet to be charged.
