The unnamed officer was traveling southbound on Highway 301 in a marked 2009 Dodge Charger when the cruiser ran into the back of a 2014 Chevy box truck towing a utility trailer that had stopped to make a turn into a private drive.
The officer was transported to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The driver of the box truck, George Cole, 41, of Dunn was not transported.
Harnett County Highway Patrol Sgt. Eric Mellott said the Dunn police officer was charged with failure to reduce speed.
