BROOKINGS, Ore. (AP) - A police officer along the southern coast of Oregon has been injured when a car he’d been pursuing struck him.
The State Police say two officers from Brookings chased a Honda Civic north along U.S. 101 after trying to stop it Sunday night for a traffic violation.
When the car turned onto a dead end road, officers pulled in behind it, but the driver turned around and sped at them.
The officers fired. The Civic hit one of them and sped off.
The State Police said the officer’s injuries are not considered life-threatening.
Officers arrested 29-year-old Marshall B. Randall of Crescent City, California, early Monday when they investigated a report of a car break-in.
He’s been accused of attempted aggravated murder and other charges.
