Ontario, CA – 40-Year-Old California Highway Patrol Officer Injured on 15 Freeway

Ontario, CA (January 17, 2019) On the night of January 15th, a traffic accident happened along the 15 Freeway at approximately 8:35 p.m., between the 10 Freeway and Jurupa Avenue.

According to the reports, a 40-year-old California Highway Patrol officer was parked on the freeway investigating an accident when a 24-year-old driver lost control of their Chevrolet Malibu and crashed into the police car and a tow truck. The impact of the collision pushed the police car down an embankment.

When the paramedics arrived, they found the police officer suffering from minor injuries. The authorities are currently investigating this accident to determine causation and liability.

We are relieved to find out that no lives were lost in this collision. We hope the police officer seeks adequate medical evaluation and fully recovers from all injuries.

Vehicle Accidents in California

One of the reasons drivers lose control of their vehicles is because of mechanical failure. The most common cause of mechanical failure is a damaged tire, which accounts for 35 percent of all accidents that occur as a result of mechanical failure. Tires can be damaged by running over sharp objects on the highway, or by driving over large potholes and cracked roads. There are even some instances where tire companies may accidentally sell damaged tires to drivers.

The police are currently investigating to determine if mechanical failure played a role in the reason why the 24-year-old driver lost control and struck the patrol vehicle. They’re also evaluating road conditions, weather conditions, and the state of mind of the driver. Once they conclude their findings, the injured officer may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit with the help of a California personal injury attorney.
