Police car hits pick-up truck in Mountain View

Squad car was responding to a call when collision occurred

A Mountain View police car hit a pickup truck Wednesday night (Dec. 28) near the intersection of Middlefield and N. Whisman roads.

The squad car, which was being driven east on Middlefield in response to a call, ran into the truck shortly before 8:20 p.m., according to Lynn Brown, a police and fire spokesman. The Mountain View Fire Department responded to the crash.

The officer and the driver of the truck were able to get out of their vehicles on their own. Although both were transported to a nearby hospital, neither had life-threatening injuries, Brown said.

Police are continuing their investigation and said they will release more details as they become available.
