A California Highway Patrol officer, responding to a traffic collision on the 405 freeway, Saturday night, that resulted in multiple injuries, had his patrol car struck by another vehicle, authorities said.
The incident was reported at 7:55 p.m. on the southbound 405 freeway, just north of Cherry Avenue. When the officer pulled up on the accident, his vehicle was struck, said Long Beach fire spokesman Matt Dobberpuhl.
At least two, possibly three people were transported to an area hospital and a total of four vehicles were involved in addition to the CHP vehicle, Dobberpuhl said.
CHP officials confirmed that the officer, who was not identified, was not injured in the crash but no other details were provided.
No other information is available at this time.
