On Friday, March 28, 2014 at approximately 9:35PM, a La Crosse Police Officer and Police Reserve were working on a DOT OWI Grant when they stopped to help a stranded motorist at 100 Lang Drive south of Monitor Street facing north.

The Officer and Reserve were in the squad with the emergency lights activated when the squad was rear-ended by a Dodge Durango Sport Utility Vehicle heading north on Lang Drive.

As a result of the crash, both the Officer and Police Reserve were transported to a local hospital for minor injuries and later released.

Anderson, 52 years of age) was also transported to a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries and will be charged with Operating a Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated/Causing Injury. The driver of the stranded vehicle was not in his vehicle at the time of the crash and was up on the sidewalk area.
