LAS VEGAS (Las Vegas Sun) -- A Metro Police patrol vehicle collided with another vehicle today while it was transporting a larceny suspect to jail.

The collision occurred about 6:35 p.m. at Rancho Drive and Coran Lane. The officer was traveling south on Rancho Drive, when it collided with a car turning left from the northbound lanes onto Coran Lane, Metro officials said.

The officer was transporting a man arrested for allegedly stealing a cellphone out of the hands of a McDonald’s worker and ran, police said. The car failed to yield to the patrol vehicle when it made its left turn, police said.

Neither the officer nor the other driver was injured in the accident. The suspect claimed back pain and was transported to University Medical Center for examination, police said.
