NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police say an officer was injured when he approached a driver who sped into his patrol car at a gas station.
  
The officer was treated for injuries after the incident Sunday afternoon at a Shell station near the edge of the Gentilly neighborhood.
  
Police were still looking on Monday for the driver and the black Infiniti FX35 with a temporary license tag.
  
A news release says the incident began when officers approached the SUV because of "suspicious activity."
  
Police say that as officers approached, the driver backed into a parked vehicle, then sped into the marked patrol car as the officer was opening his door to get out. The SUV hit a second patrol car before leaving the scene.
