At 4:30 this morning, Officers Donovan Shirley, Javier Baca, & Rehan Cardona were dispatched to a single-car crash in the 1900 blk. of E. 4th. Officers Shirley & Baca arrived first to find that a car traveling WB had crossed the EB lanes of traffic, gone off the road, & hit a tree head on.

The driver was conscious & talking, but the officers couldn’t get the car’s doors open, even after breaking a window & trying to pry them open. The driver wasn’t wearing a seatbelt & his legs were badly jammed up underneath the dash. PFD responded & fire fighters had to use extraction tools to get the driver out, which took some time. After they got him out, AMR transported him to the hospital. His injuries don’t appear to be life-threatening.

Officers aren’t sure yet what caused the crash & the investigation is ongoing.
