JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A Jacksonville police officer was hospitalized following a crash that flipped his patrol car.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports that the officer was driving to work Thursday morning when a truck driven by 50-year-old Lester Francis Lyons Jr. sideswiped the police cruiser.

The officer was taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries, and Lyons was not injured. Both men were wearing seat belts.

Lyons has been cited with leaving his lane. Troopers are trying to determine if some kind of medical condition caused Lyons to have a seizure while he was driving.
