Law enforcement cited a Casper police officer who was driving her department cruiser when she rear ended a citizen's car Monday morning, according to a statement from the police department.

A police spokeswoman told the Star-Tribune that Amanda Cook was the officer behind the wheel. Nobody was injured in the crash, which took place on First Street when the driver in front of Cook stopped for pedestrians in the street.

A Natrona County sheriff's deputy cited Cook for following too closely. Cook will "undergo additional safe driving training and take steps to avoid incidents in the future," according to the statement.

"The Casper Police Department is dedicated to ensuring the safety of our community and officers at all times," the agency said in the statement, which thanked the sheriff's office for its investigation.
