Escondido- Driver Deliberately Crashed Into San Diego Sheriff’s Deputy Car
A San Diego sheriff’s deputy officer sustained minor injuries in unincorporated Escondido when a driver deliberately crashed a vehicle into the officer’s car on Sunday, July 7, 2019. A driver who fled during a traffic stop and led the deputy officer into a high speed pursuit turned around and crashed an SUV into the officer’s patrol car. At 10:44 pm, Sunday, July 7, 2019, Deputy S. Hurd saw a dark Nissan Pathfinder being driven northbound on Center City Parkway near Jesmond Dene Road without any lights turned on. The deputy initiated a traffic stop Champagne Boulevard, north of Mountain Meadow Road. The driver then stopped briefly but took off inn the vehicle north on Champagne Boulevard at speeds of 90 mph. The driver then turned west on Gopher Canyon Road. The driver did a U-turn and entered the southbound 5 Freeway, then did another U-turn from the far left lane to head northbound in the southbound lane deliberately into the rear passenger door of Deputy Hurd’s patrol car, disabling the sheriff’s vehicle. Hurd complained of pain and was taken to a hospital for treatment.
