A Selma Police officer responding to a call of a man with a gun at the Little Cub market on Broad Street Wednesday afternoon, clipped a Ford Sports Utility Vehicle at the corner of Franklin and L.L. Anderson Thursday afternoon.

According to SPD Chief Jimmy Martin at least one person was injured in the incident.

The accident occurred at approximately 3:30 p.m.

Earlier a call about a disturbance at the Little Cub market was followed by a request for assistance about a man with a gun.

The cruiser apparently struck the SUV in the left rear and the impact sent the SUV off the road and into the mud, where it appeared the front axle had snapped.

Two people, who have not been identified, were in the SUV at the time of the wreck.

Martin said that all those involved in the accident were treated for minor injuries.

Martin added that the officer was not injured in the accident, though the cruiser appeared to absorb the brunt of the damage.
