CHP Officer Badly Injured As A Result Of Impaired Truck Driver

Early Saturday Morning a South Area CHP officer with 18 years of service was badly injured when his patrol car was rear ended by a FedEx truck. The Officer was investigating a hit and run accident on the elevated portion of Highway 50 when the accident happened.

It was later learned that the FedEx Truck Driver is suspected of driving under the influence of a controlled substance and that additional controlled substance was found in the cab of the truck. It was later learned that the substance in question is a caffeine stimulant which brings into question how alert the driver of the truck was at the time of the collision. The accident happened at about 3:30 am and Officer Vincent Smith was taken to the hospital where he remains in serious condition after being run over. Officer Smith suffered extensive injuries to his upper and lower torso. Gregory Ramirez failed to yield to the hazard lights that were active on the patrol vehicle.

Federal Express spokesman David Westrick said "First and foremost our thoughts are with the officer and others involved in this accident, and we are cooperating fully with the authorities as they conduct their investigation." The entire team at GB Legal is praying for the full recovery of Officer Smith. Members of the CHP face challenges on the road like this daily and their most important is the protection of every motorist on the roads and that includes Mr. Ramirez. Accidents like this clearly show that driving while tired or impaired places everyone at increased risk of serious injury and even death.
