The California Highway Patrol said that a Stanislaus County Sheriff’s deputy ran a red signal light at Hatch and Crowslanding roads Wednesday evening and collided with an Oakdale Police car resulting in limited injuries.
The names of the officers involved were not released.
The 29-year-old deputy was not injured but the three occupants in the Oakdale Police car sustained minor injuries and sought out their own aid. The Oakdale car was occupied by the 25-year-old driver, and men aged 31 and 52.
The crash was at 11:57 p.m.
The CHP reported that the deputy was traveling eastbound on Hatch Road, approaching Crows Landing Road approaching a red traffic signal light. The Oakdale Police unit was traveling southbound on Crows Landing Road as it approached the green light on Hatch Road. The two collided when the deputy failed to stop for the red traffic light as the Oakdale Police Officer entered the intersection.
