LANCASTER – Two deputies sustained minor injuries Thursday when their patrol car was broadsided in a Lancaster intersection, authorities said.
The collision happened just before 12 p.m. Thursday, June 18, in the intersection of Lancaster Boulevard and Challenger Way.
A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s patrol car traveling westbound on Lancaster Boulevard was struck by a Toyota Prius headed southbound on Challenger Way, according to Sgt. Hoyt of Lancaster Sheriff’s Station.
“Deputies were responding code 3, lights and sirens, to an emergency call, and they were clearing the intersection,” Hoyt said. “A car came through the intersection and broadsided them.”
“Everyone complained of minor injuries,” Hoyt added.
Both deputies in the patrol car were transported to the hospital, where they were treated for minor injuries and then released, according to Hoyt.
The Toyota’s driver was also treated for minor injuries.
It was unclear Thursday whether any citations were issued in connection with the collision.
