SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (AP) A Sandy Springs police officer hurt in a traffic accident while on duty is expected to recover from his injuries.

Sandy Springs police say the two-car wreck happened in the southbound lanes of Georgia 400 near Northridge Road in Sandy Springs shortly before 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Authorities said the officer was in the right emergency lane while completing an accident call when his vehicle was struck from the back by another vehicle, which had crossed over to the emergency lane.

Police say both drivers were taken to North Fulton Hospital with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

No charges were immediately filed, and police have not identified the officer or the motorist.
