BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A crash in south Bakersfield has left one police officer and two other pedestrians injured.

The Bakersfield Police Department reports that on Saturday, August 16 at about 9:15 p.m., two Bakersfield police officers in two separate patrol cars were traveling eastbound on Wilson Road when the first officer changed lanes to pass a motorist in front of him.

As the officer completed the change, he noticed two women walking westbound in the eastbound lane of the roadway. The BPD said the officer then tried to brake, but was rear-ended by the second patrol car which caused him to strike both women. 

Both women and an one of the officers suffered minor injuries as a result and were taken to a local hospital for treatment.
