El Cajon, CA- CHP Officer Seriously Injured In A Crash On Interstate 8

A California Highway Patrol motorcycle officer was seriously injured in a crash on Interstate 8 in El Cajon, CA on Thursday night, June 27, 2019. The crash occurred around 9:40 pm on westbound Interstate 8 east of Main Street. A car sideswiped the CHP officer’s motorcycle. The car was travelling at a high rate of speed. At the time of the crash, the CHP officer was merging his motorcycle from the shoulder to the left lane. The CHP officer was reportedly pulled over on the center divide to assist a disabled vehicle. The vehicle that hit the CHP officer’s motorcycle was identified as a white Chevy Camaro. After the crash, the CHP officer was able to ride his motorcycle back into the shoulder before he was transported to Sharp Memorial Hospital. The driver of the Camaro was identified as 25-year old Richard Chambers from El Cajon. Chambers left the crash site by exiting the freeway at West Main Street. He was soon contacted by officers. Chambers was later arrested under the suspicion of DUI.
