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.
