ATLANTA (CBS46) -

The Atlanta Police Department told CBS Atlanta it is investigating what caused an officer's cruiser to slam into a telephone pole Saturday afternoon.

The incident happened around 6:18 p.m. at Olive Street Southeast and Claire Drive Southeast.

The roads were slick from rains which have been hitting the area, but APD did not speculate on whether that caused the wreck.

An Atlanta police spokeswoman told CBS Atlanta that the officer was alert, conscious and breathing after the wreck.

The officer's cruiser had damage to the front end. The telephone pole was snapped into two pieces.
