From San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Department:
Last night just before midnight on Oct. 4, 2019, two of our deputies were struck by a wrong-way driver as they were driving southbound I-5 near French Camp Rd. exit. Our deputies’ vehicle, was pushed off the highway and found on the west embankment.
Thankfully, a Stockton Police Department Patrol unit was close behind. The two officers stopped to render aid and were met by a combative suspect who was attempting to flee the scene. The suspect was taken into custody. Both deputies were transported to a local hospital and later released.
The California Highway Patrol responded to the crash and began an investigation regarding the impaired driver.
