A driver crashed into 22 recruits of the LA County sheriff, injuring 5 of them

WHITTIER, Calif. – A car rammed into 22 new Los Angeles County sheriff’s officers training around dawn Wednesday and five people were seriously injured, authorities said.

Los Angeles County Fire Department spokeswoman Captain Sheila Kelliher said a total of 23 people were injured, including the driver.

In addition to 5 people seriously injured, there were also 4 people with minor injuries and 14 people with minor injuries. The driver was among those with minor injuries, she said.

The accident happened around dawn on Wednesday morning in suburban Whittier, where the department’s STAR Explorer Training Academy is located.

Helicopter TV news broadcasts showed massive reactions from firefighters and ambulances, a vehicle on the sidewalk, as well as numerous individuals nearby in uniformed training clothes.

A statement from the Sheriff’s Department said a recruiting class was hit by a vehicle around 6:26 a.m. during a training session. The recruits wore reflective vests, and there were about 40 of them running in groups.

“We have no excuses,” Kelliher said. “We don’t have any other information about how the driver lost control, so at this point that’s basic information we can share with you.”
