IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — An eastern Idaho woman who authorities say ran into a parked patrol car with lights flashing and injured the Idaho Falls police officer inside faces a variety of charges.

The Idaho State Police say 19-year-old Makenzi Paoli of Idaho Falls was not wearing a seatbelt in the crash about 10:30 a.m. Friday and faces charges of driving without privileges, inattentive driving, failing to provide proof of insurance and possession of marijuana. Authorities say 49-year-old Michael Cosens of the Idaho Falls Police Department was in a 2009 Dodge Charger on Yellowstone Highway providing traffic control as a tow truck removed a vehicle from the roadway.

Police say Paoli drove her 2009 Kia Spectra into the back of the police vehicle, injuring Cosens. Cosens was transported by ground ambulance an Idaho Falls hospital. A hospital spokeswoman says he was treated and released.
