A deputy sheriff in Palmdale was injured this evening when they were responding to a medical emergency and someone cut them off.
As anyone who has driven Code 3 can relate to, this happens all the time and it can be scary as hell. We’re glad to hear the deputy should be okay.
Per KTLA, “The deputy was responding to a medical emergency when he crashed, a Honda attempted to make a left turn in front of him and collided with the sheriff’s SUV, according to investigators. The deputy’s vehicle then ran into a tree and hit a fire hydrant before coming to rest on its side against a light pole with its windshield completely shattered.”
