California Highway Patrol Officer Airlifted after Rollover Crash on Highway 1
BIG SUR, CA (June 3, 2020) – A CHP officer sustained injuries in a rollover crash on Highway 1 near Plaskett Creek, Wednesday morning.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the incident happened at about 11:00 AM. An officer was responding to a fire when he came across a skateboarder in the road. In an attempt to avoid the skateboarder, the officer swerved, causing the vehicle to roll over multiple times.
