A California Highway Patrol officer and a motorist were hurt Wednesday afternoon in a two-vehicle crash in Nuevo.

The collision occurred at 4:05 p.m. on the Ramona Expressway at Lakeview Avenue, according to the CHP, which reported that the patrol unit was hit by a sedan, but no other details were immediately available.

The officer suffered unspecified minor injuries, as did the motorist, and Riverside County Fire Department personnel requested separate ambulances for both, but they declined to be taken to a hospital for further treatment and evaluation, according to reports from the scene.

Damage to the patrol car required it to be towed away from the location for inspection and repairs.

No one was arrested.

The cause of the crash was under investigation.
