Three People Injured in Collision Involving LAPD Vehicle [Los Angeles, CA]

Los Angeles, CA (June 24, 2024)- Three people injured in collision involving an LAPD cruiser in Jefferson Park on Sunday were hospitalized, according to authorities.

The accident, which occurred shortly before 6 p.m. on Adams Boulevard near Gramercy Place, involved a Los Angeles Police Department vehicle responding to an urgent call. As the police cruiser was heading to assist the Los Angeles Fire Department with a report of a psychiatric patient armed with a knife, it collided with at least one other vehicle.

The impact resulted in injuries to all three individuals involved – the two LAPD officers and a civilian. Emergency services quickly arrived at the scene, where the officers were treated for minor injuries. However, the civilian required extraction from his vehicle and was found in critical condition, breathing but not conscious. All three were transported to a nearby hospital for further medical evaluation and treatment.
