One person died, and a Los Angeles Sheriff’s deputy was injured, in a suspected DUI crash Sunday morning. The accident was reported in the early hours of the morning when a driver suspected to be under the influence collided with a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department patrol vehicle in Lancaster, California, according to the sheriff’s department.
The female deputy was the only occupant inside her vehicle at the time of the crash and was transported to a hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries, and currently remains in stable condition. The driver, whose identity has not been released, was pronounced dead at the scene. The California Highway Patrol’s Antelope Valley Division is investigating what led up to the crash.
