According to the Waite Park Police Department, the crash occurred Sunday morning on the 3200 block of County Road 74 in the city of St. Cloud. Waite Park was called in to assist with the case. 

The squad car was heading south on CR 74 when a minivan was seen driving in the wrong lane at the police vehicle. The officer swerved into the northbound lane to avoid a collision, but the minivan did too.
