Meridian Police Officer Terry Lester has been issued a citation for failing to yield at a left turn in connection with a Sept. 1 crash at Ten Mile Road and Cherry Lane in Meridian, the Ada County Sheriff's Office reported Tuesday.
Lester was headed west on Cherry Lane just after 2 p.m. when he turned south onto Ten Mile and his patrol SUV collided with an eastbound SUV, investigators said.
Paramedics took the officer to a local hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening, the ACSO reported last week, and the female driver of the other vehicle was taken by a friend to a local hospital to be checked out.
The infraction Lester is charged with carries a total fine amount, including court costs, of $90, an ACSO spokesman said Tuesday.
