An officer was injured when an LAPD squad car crashed in a high-speed pursuit of a suspected stolen car on Wednesday, officials said.
Several Los Angeles Police Department vehicles were in pursuit of a black Infiniti around 2:30 p.m. when one of the officers collapsed near 108th Street and Compton Avenue in Watts, Officer Warren Moore said.
It’s unclear how the accident happened or how many vehicles were involved, but only one injury was reported from the scene, he said.
Footage from KABC-TV Channel 7 showed an LAPD SUV apparently colliding with a gray SUV and into a blue pickup truck in front. The pickup was apparently pushed onto the sidewalk and into a gray vehicle parked behind.
The extent of the officer’s injuries was unknown.
The driver of the Infiniti was arrested at the scene, Moore said.
