AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -

One person was taken to the hospital with minor injuries last night after a collision involving an Amarillo Police Department patrol car. 

Officials say around 10:50 p.m., Officer Eric Castillo was driving west on Southwest 3rd Avenue in a 2014 APD SUV. 

Officials say a 2007 Pontiac driven by 60-year-old Steward Larner Davis was heading south on South Fairmont Street when Davis failed to yield right of way at a stop sign, pulling out in front of Officer Castillo. 

The SUV struck the Pontiac, and Davis was taken to the hospital with what were originally thought to be life-threatening injuries. 

It was later determined that Davis' injuries were not life-threatening. Officer Castillo received minor injuries as well. 

The collision is under investigation by the Traffic Investigation Squad of the Amarillo Police Department.
