GLENDORA, Calif. – A Los Angeles Police Department motorcycle officer suffered major injuries after he was in a crash involving two Ford pickup trucks on the 210 Freeway in Baldwin Park Wednesday morning, the California Highway Patrol said.
According to the CHP, Officer Jeremy Hollings was on his way to work on the westbound 210 Freeway riding a 2015 LAPD BMW motorcycle between the HOV and No. 1 lane. Charles Lange, 43, of Alta Loma, was driving a 2013 Ford F-250 near Hollings as well as Jose Rodriguez, 41, of Moreno Valley. Rodriguez was driving a 2018 Ford F-250.
Lange was traveling ahead of Hollings in the No. 1 lane and Rodriguez was driving in the HOV lane behind Officer Hollings.
Around 5:20 a.m., the right side of Hollings’ motorcycle collided with the left side of Lange’s truck east of Barranca Avenue, which caused him to veer into the HOV lane and into Rodriguez’s truck, CHP officials said. Rodriguez then collided with the motorcycle.
Officer Hollings suffered major injuries and was rushed to Pomona Valley Hospital.
No one else was injured in the crash.
A SigAlert was issued in the area for about an hour before the HOV and No. 1 lane reopened.
Anyone with information is asked to contact CHP Officer John Werner by calling 626-338-1164.
