NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A Metro police officer injured in a crash in east Nashville Monday evening is expected to make a full recovery.

The crash occurred at the intersection of Gallatin and Stratton avenues around 6:15 p.m.

Police told News 2 the driver of a Dodge Intrepid pulled out in front of the police cruiser, clipping the front-end of the officer's vehicle.

The officer, Jordan Donegan, was taken via ambulance to Vanderbilt University Medical Center complaining of back pain.  He has since been treated and released.

The driver of the Dodge, Tripper Ryder, did not require medical treatment.

Ryder, a local musician, told News 2 he was trying to turn left and was "inching out" into traffic when the collision occurred.

The road was shutdown for several hours while police investigated.

Officer Donegan works the evening shift at the east precinct.
