DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - Five people, including two police officers, have been injured in a car wreck in Dubuque.

Officials say the officers were responding to an emergency call when their squad car collided with a sports utility vehicle at an intersection Wednesday night.

The Iowa State Patrol says the SUV ran a redt light.

The patrol says the SUV's driver, Laura Virtue, of Dubuque, didn't see the red light because she had turned to check on passengers in the back seat.

Virtue, her husband and their 1-year-old daughter were treated for minor injuries and released. The two officers were also treated and released.

The patrol says charges are pending.
