Three people including a police officer were hospitalized after a car barreled into the scene of a minor traffic collision in Anaheim on Monday.
The officer had responded to a fender-bender involving a BMW SUV that had rear-ended an Acura SUV, the Orange County Register reported.
Suddenly a Honda Civic slammed into the back of the BMW, causing a chain reaction crash, said Anaheim Police Sgt. Shane Carringer.
The officer and a driver of one of the SUVs were hospitalized with injuries considered serious, though not life-threatening, Carringer said. The man driving the Honda was also taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
