MID-CITY, LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Officers are investigating a chase and shooting involving a Ford Mustang and a police cruiser.
At around 3:15 am, a silver pickup truck shot into a Ford Mustang, striking the passenger in the car. He was transported to an area hospital with a wound to the neck and is listed in stable condition. The driver exited the freeway, and authorities proceeded to shut down the freeway to investigate. As some of the officers were navigating and detouring traffic, a suspected drunk driver hit one of the police cruisers. Officers were not located in the vehicle and weren’t injured. The driver of the other car who collided with the police cruiser was arrested at the scene.
This shooting could have been compounded into more tragedy had the police officers still be in the vehicle. Auto collisions occur for any number of reasons – Drunk driving, hit and run, losing control of the vehicle, and distracted driving. Some injuries may lead to long-term ailments requiring pain medication, therapy or loss of function. You may require time off work to recover from injuries completely and those costs are not likely part of the settlement they will offer you.
