Witnesses have reported the collision that led to the rollover happened when a driver of a passenger vehicle that was not involved in this morning’s chase entered the intersection of Highway 273 and Briggs Street and struck the patrol car.

The impact caused the patrol SUV to overturn multiple times before it came to rest on its roof in the middle of the roadway.

It was not immediately known if the officer involved in the crash was injured and no word was available regarding anyone else who may have been injured in the collision.

Although official radio traffic at the time indicated officers were possibly in pursuit of a red Dodge Charger when the rollover crash happened, neither Anderson PD or CHP – who is investigating this morning’s collision – have confirmed any details related to the accident.

CHP is investigating the crash and their investigation is ongoing.
