San Jose, CA – Police Officer Injured After Being Struck By Cart

Fatal three-vehicle crash in Placer County

San Jose, CA (July 27, 2018) – A California Highway Patrol officer is recovering after being struck by a motorized cart Friday morning.  Around 3:30 am, officers were called to Clayton Road near Miller Avenue in San Jose, in reference to a crash.  When officers arrived on the scene, they spotted a vehicle fleeing the area.  The fleeing vehicle was pulling a motorized cart.  Somehow, the motorized cart became detached as the vehicle drove away.

The cart struck a CHP officer on the scene, causing injuries.  There is no word on the officer’s condition at this time, however, his injuries are not life-threatening.  Police have yet to apprehend the driver.

No further details are available as the crash remains under investigation.

Southern California Personal Injury Accidents

A personal injury accident can happen at any time.  Car accidents are scary for all involved.  Things only get worse when there is an injury accompanying the accident.  Many professions, including police officers, place their safety at risk every time they go to work.  For officers and others, the probability of an accident is a risk they must take.

However, we are all at risk each time we get behind the wheel.   There is no way to know if we will cross paths with a negligent or distracted driver.  Although we all hope never to be involved in a crash, there is help available if we are.
