Ledyard — Ledyard police say an officer conducting a motor vehicle stop suffered minor injuries after being struck by the passenger-side mirror of another vehicle, which did not stop.

According to the police report, the officer had been conducting a motor vehicle stop at 2:20 a.m. Saturday on Route 2, which has two westbound travel lanes and two eastbound travel lanes.

The officer charged a driver with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or narcotics and was speaking to that driver, when a gray or dark-colored, four-door sedan hit the officer with its passenger-side mirror at 2:23 a.m.

The officer was treated for the minor injuries at Backus Hospital in Norwich and released, according to the report.

Ledyard police are seeking to locate and identify the evading driver and vehicle. Police ask anyone with information to call Ledyard police Sgt. Eric Bushor at (860) 464-6400.
