The collision occurred at the corner of Allumettières and Grives boulevards shortly before 9 a.m.
Police said the officer was approaching a red light and tried to brake, but because of the slippery roads, crashed into the vehicle they were attempting to pull over.
The driver of that vehicle was wanted for a traffic infraction. No one was hurt in the crash, police said.
