Car Crashes into Patrol Car West of Sacramento

No one ever wants to be in an auto accident, much less the cause of the crash, and even more less to have the owner of the wrecked car owned by the highway patrol. Let’s say something like this would be unfortunate, but it’s exactly what happened just west of our Sacramento home off of I-80 in Berkley, CA two nights ago. More often than not these accidents should offer a cause for a moment of reflection.

Much known to us Sacramento locals, the I-80 can be quite hectic at times. But at 2:15 in the morning, this accident wasn’t anything less than a negligent driver, as the facts clearly state. They are indisputable. And alcohol seems to have played a part in this event, although maybe not as we would have expected it.

While evaluating a man suspected of drunk driving, two officers barely missed being hit by a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado that was driving partially on the shoulder of the interstate. Going 65 mph, the truck violently hit the highway patrol car, sending the officer’s car propelling 35 feet. The Silverado then proceeded to hit the suspected drunk man’s Toyota Tacoma, coming to a stop thereafter. Two people were injured in the accident, including the man the officers were evaluating who suffered a broken femur. The officers escaped unharmed and were able to handle the situation in terms of appropriate safety measures.
