JACKSONVILLE, Fla — A Jacksonville Sheriff's officer is expected to be OK after being involved in a crash in the Bowden neighborhood Saturday evening. 

Shortly after 6 p.m., the officer was traveling eastbound on University Boulevard after a traffic detail, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. At the same time, a Chevrolet Silverado was traveling westbound on University Boulevard in the center turning lane to make a left turn into a business. 

The driver of the Silverado did not see the JSO officer, JSO said. The two collided and wound up in a hotel parking lot on the south side of the road. Both the officer and the driver were taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

One eastbound lane is closed as officers investigate, according to police.
