2 LAPD officers injured in rollover crash in San Fernando Valley
Two Los Angeles police officers and another man were injured early Sunday in a traffic collision in the San Fernando Valley that also damaged four parked cars, authorities said.
The collision was reported about 2:30 a.m. on Sepulveda Boulevard near Plummer Street in North Hills, according to LAPD Officer J. Rice of the Valley Traffic Division.
Police believe a driver struck an LAPD sport utility vehicle and the parked cars, and at some point the man’s car flipped on its side. Police did not provide a precise timeline of the crash.
Video footage showed the driver’s overturned vehicle and a parked pickup truck that appeared to have been smashed into an adjacent white sedan. Both airbags were visibly deployed in the police SUV, which showed significant front-end damage.
The driver, who may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the crash, was taken to a hospital with unknown injuries, Rice said.
The crash is under investigation by the LAPD’s Valley Traffic Division.
