TAMPA (FOX 13) -

A Tampa police officer and two others are recovering after an accident on the Suncoast Parkway.

Police say Officer Kris Babino, driving in his police cruiser after work, struck another car when it slowed down in front of him.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the vehicle had turned toward the grassy median and stopped, blocking the inside lane, and troopers say it was unavoidable.

The accident happened in the northbound lanes just north of SR 54.

Babino suffered a possible broken hand, while the two people inside the car also suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The driver was cited for improper stopping.
