GONZALES - Officers cited a driver for failure to yield at a left turn and hitting a Gonzales Police Department unit Sunday. 

According to the GPD, the crash happened on Airline Highway at Highway 74 in Gonzales. The other driver was cited for failure to yield while turning left at an intersection. 

The crash resulted in minor injuries, but the GPD did not specify who was injured. 

The officer driving the unit was off-duty and wearing civilian clothes but was within policy, according to the department.
