An SUV slammed into the back of a Fresno police car on Sunday while the officer was conducting a traffic stop in north Fresno, according to the California Highway Patrol.
A man inside the SUV had an ice pack to his knee, but CHP said there were no other injuries.
The officer had stopped a blue pickup on the southwest corner of Nees and Willow avenues around 11:30 a.m. when a white SUV with a man and a woman driving east made a right turn onto Nees Avenue, slamming into the back of the car, CHP said. The police car then hit the pickup which was parked in front of it. The occupants of the pickup were not inside at the time, CHP said.
Drugs and alcohol are not believed to be factors in the crash, CHP said.
