Car slams into group of California police recruits, at least 10 injured

Senior national correspondent William La Jeunesse reports on a car in California plowing into a group of police recruits, leaving at least 10 people injured.

More than 20 law enforcement recruits have been injured, at least five critically, after a driver plowed into them while out on a morning run in California on Wednesday.

The recruits have been rushed to hospitals, and authorities have detained a suspect believed to be the driver of the vehicle, according to Fox 11. The California Highway Patrol says the incident took place at roughly 6:30 a.m. local time.

The L.A. County Fire Department says five individuals had critical injuries, four had moderate injuries and another 14 had minor injuries.

The recruits are reportedly attendees of the Sheriff’s Training Academy and Regional Services (STARS) Center in Whittier, California. Whittier is a suburb of Los Angeles.
