A Houston police officer and another driver suffered minor injuries in an accident late last night.

It happened last night around 11:30pm on the Gulf Freeway near Edgebrook. Investigators say the driver of an SUV tried to change lanes when he side-swiped a patrol car. Both drivers were transported to the hospital.

Southbound traffic was reduced to one lane for two hours while police investigated.
