Two Fond du Lac County squad cars were hit during a traffic stop late Friday night. 

Around 8 p.m. the squad cars were stopped at W. Johnson Street near N. Seymour Street. 

That's when they were hit from behind by a 78-year-old driver. 

A 27-year-old woman was in the backseat of one of the squads that was hit. She was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.

An officer was able to pull another person out of the vehicle that officers had stopped, which helped them avoid serious injury. 

No officers were hurt in the crash.

The incident is still under investigation.
