Pedestrian hit by Elk Grove police patrol car

An Elk Grove police officer in a patrol car hit a pedestrian Friday night.

The pedestrian suffered serious injuries and was taken to the hospital. Officer Chris Trim said the pedestrian is expected to survive.

The crash happened around 11 p.m. in the 7500 block of Laguna Boulevard, near Chili's. Trim said the pedestrian was running across several lanes when he was hit by the officer in the westbound lanes. The pedestrian was not near a crosswalk and was attempting to cross six lanes, which are divided by a median.

The officer was not injured. Trim said the patrol car sustained front-end damage.

The westbound lanes were closed as the crash was investigated, and then re-opened at 3:20 a.m. Saturday.
