Not only were six people injured in a collision in Pacific Palisades this morning when an ambulance was involved in a collision, but now more Los Angeles first-responders have been involved in crashes. Shortly after 2:00 a.m. this morning, an LAPD squad car traveling on Westbound 118 collided with another car, prompting the shutdown of all lanes on that side of the freeway. As of 8:30 this morning, only the car pool and lane #1 were open. The officers were sent to the hospital with unknown injuries and no one else is reported to be hurt.

The incident occurred in Granada Hills at Zelzah Ave near the Balboa on and off-ramps.
