Police officers often put their lives at risk in order to save others from possible harm. A California Highway Patrol (CHP) officer sustained moderate injuries after he was hit by a vehicle while trying to help a driver who has a disabled Mercedes

According to reports, the male officer was dispatched at the Santiago Canyon Road in Orange County at around 4:40 p.pm. He was inside his patrol car when a 2009 Nissan driver lost control of the vehicle.

Police said the Nissan may have hit the patrol car, causing it to crash into the Mercedes or may have hit the Mercedes, causing it to crash into the patrol car. The investigation may hopefully reveal all the facts that are related to the accident.

The dispatched officer suffered from moderate injuries while the Nissan driver sustained major injuries. They were rushed to Western Medical Center in order to be treated for their injuries.
