Posted: Updated:

URBANDALE, Iowa (AP) - Authorities are trying to find a man suspected of involvement in a traffic accident who pepper-sprayed an Urbandale officer who stopped him.

The Urbandale Police Department said in a news release that the accident was reported about 5:10 a.m. Thursday. The department says the officer spotted a vehicle that matched the description of a vehicle reportedly involved, so the officer pulled it over.

The department says that after the officer started talking to the driver, the man sprayed the officer and fled the scene.
