ST. LOUIS(KSDK) - A collision between two vehicles in south St. Louis late Thursday has sent a city policeman to the hospital with serious injuries.

Investigators say just after 11:00 p.m. Thursday, a St. Louis officer in his personal vehicle was en-route to work the overnight shift, when his car collided with a second vehicle on Hampton near Milentz.

Police say the other driver failed to yield to the oncoming police officers car while making a left turn. That unidentified 33 year old driver was cited by officers.

The unidentified police officer is reported to be in critical but stable condition this morning.
