Two teenagers have been arrested after a police officer was struck by a vehicle during a traffic stop in Edmonton.

Police say officers pulled over a Hyundai Sonata for speeding near Mill Woods Road and 36B Avenue shortly after 4 p.m. on Monday.

There was a brief interaction between the officers and the driver before police say the driver put the car in reverse, hitting one of the officers.

The officer was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The 15-year-old female driver and the 19-year-old female passenger were arrested at the scene, and charges are pending.

Investigators have since determined that the vehicle was stolen, and the driver did not have a valid licence.
