A Solon police officer is recovering after his police cruiser was struck by another driver. Just before 11 p.m. Monday, police said Officer Roy Cunningham’s was struck by a Monte Carlo near the intersection of Harper Road and State Route 43. The driver, a 19-year-old Garfield Heights man, had been trying to make an improper turn into a gas station when he crashed into the cruiser, Solon police said. Both men were treated for minor injuries at the scene.
During a crash investigation, another Solon officer discovered a small amount of marijuana inside the Monte Carlo.
The 19-year-old was then arrested on fourth degree misdemeanor drug abuse charges and held on a $250 cash bond.
He was also cited for failure to yield while turning left.
