A spokesperson for Florida Highway Patrol confirmed they are working a crash that involves a Tallahassee Police Department patrol car and a pedestrian.

The crash was reported just before 9:30 a.m., Friday near the intersection of Crawfordville Highway and Wakulla Arran Road. That location is according to the FHP live traffic crash map. As of 10:30 a.m., the map indicated Crawfordville Highway was blocked in this location.
