LOCKLAND, OH (FOX19) -

A Reading police officer was struck by a Lockland police officer during a chase early Tuesday, Lockland Police Chief James Toles said.

The Reading officer was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, checked over and released, according to the chief.

The officer's name has not been released.

"He is doing fine, very minor injury sustained," Toles wrote in a Facebook message early Tuesday.  "He is out of hospital, was just being checked out. They were involved in a foot chase, which resulted in my officer in car and Reading officer on foot colliding in area where he was chasing subject."

It happened at Patterson and Arlington avenues in Lockland about 2:20 a.m., according to Hamilton County dispatchers.

The incident began earlier in Reading after Reading police spotted two people with open warrants and tried to stop them, but they split up and fled, dispatchers said.

One of the suspect was detained in Reading, but the other - a man with felony warrants - continued to flee, according to dispatchers.

"I struck him chasing this subject," a Lockland officer said on a recording of radio traffic released to FOX19 NOW.

Later in the recording, the officer said: "Just to confirm here, this is not an officer shot. He was struck by my vehicle."

Reading police refer questions to their police chief, who has not responded to multiple requests yet.

FOX19 NOW will continue to update this story as information develops.
