Des Moines Officer Hit Near Fairgrounds

DES MOINES, IA (AP) -- A Des Moines police officer was treated for minor injuries after being struck by a vehicle outside the Iowa State Fair.   

Police say senior police officer Ben Ihde was directing traffic outside the fairgrounds about 6:30 p.m. Saturday when he was hit by a vehicle that was slowly turning onto another street.   

Ihde was knocked off balance and fell, striking his head.   

He was treated for minor injuries at a hospital and released.   

The vehicle was driven by Jose Chavez-Sagastizado, 32, of Des Moines. Neither alcohol nor speeding appears to have been a factor.   

An investigation of the incident is continuing.
