A collision involving a Los Angeles Police Department car and an SUV in the Glassel Park area Monday left seven people injured, including four officers, authorities said.
The crash was reported at Fletcher Drive and San Fernando Road about 8:45 a.m., LAPD Officer Rosario Herrera said.
According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, seven patients were transported for hospital treatment, four in serious condition and three in fair condition. The conditions of the officers were not immediately known.
According to the preliminary investigation, the officers were in an unmarked Ford Crown Victoria and were on a backup call with the car’s lights and siren activated when it collided with the SUV, which was traveling at “high speed,” Herrera said.
