A Boynton Beach police officer remains hospitalized Tuesday morning with non-life-threatening injuries following a crash Monday evening. 

The crash happened at the intersection of Ocean Avenue and Federal Highway.

Police cited the driver of the SUV.

The name of the officer has not been released.

The occupants of the Chevy Equinox were not injured.
