A Hillsboro police cruiser was rear-ended on Wednesday night, a spokesperson from the Wilmington Ohio State Highway Patrol Post told The Times-Gazette.

Though the spokesperson said he would not release names of those involved in the crash, he said the person that rear-ended the cruiser was found to be at fault. The officer received non-life-threatening injuries, the representative said.

Witnesses said North West Street (SR 73) was closed for about two hours Wednesday night between Pea Ridge Road and Harry Sauner Road.
