North Hills: Officer Injured After Man Crashes Into Crime Scene

Just before 3am an LAPD Devonshire officer was investigating an accident that had occurred just over an hour earlier (1:32AM) involving multiple vehicles near the intersection of Parthenia and Hayvenhurst. Witnesses and officers state that a driver in an SUV apparently did not see the investigation taking place in the middle of Parthenia St and rammed through the crash scene hitting an LAPD car. At least 1 officer was injured but was seen talking with paramedics after the accident. He was clearly in pain. He was transported to a local hospital in unknown condition. The driver of the vehicle that crashed into the scene was also injured and transported. It is unknown at this time why he crashed into the crash scene and it is unknown if drugs or alcohol were a factor. Parthenia St between Odessa Ave and Gothic Ave remains closed Sunday morning for a second investigation.
