Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Cruiser Crashes into Dude's Yard
The officer and a passenger -- in the car for a ride-along -- were responding to a call early this morning when his cruiser crashed through a wall and nearly hit a house.
We contacted the Sheriff's Office to get the details but -- as expected -- nobody got back to us.
KPHO got the scoop, though, and it seems the officer was responding to a call about a domestic dispute when the cruiser hit a tree, careened through a wall and into someone's yard near 115th Avenue and Union Hills in Surprise just after midnight.
A witness says the cruiser stopped about a foot from the house.
The officer and passenger were taken to John C. Lincoln Hospital in Phoenix where they were treated for minor bumps and bruises and released.
An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
