Los Angeles, CA (September 22, 2023) – On Friday evening, a motorist hit a Los Angeles Police Department officer in the Jefferson Park neighborhood of South Los Angeles.
Just before 10:00 p.m., a white Mercedes struck an officer who was working with the LAPD Southwest on a pursuit termination in the 3100 block of South Western Avenue.
The radio sent an “officer down” message, prompting the deployment of further aid. Los Angeles Fire Department officials and EMTs transferred the officer to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where his status is still unclear.
The driver was held at the scene and given both a field sobriety test and a breathalyzer. At this time, more details are unavailable.
