City of Espanola Police Chief Roger Jimenez confirmed Sunday that one of his officers received minor injuries in a single-vehicle crash on East Jemez Road at around 6:30 a.m. Sunday.
Los Alamos Fire Deparment and Police Department responded to the scene where the officer’s patrol vehicle appeared to have struck a power pole and sustained extensive damage. The officer reportedly suffered a gash on his forehead but had already exited the vehicle.
By 8 a.m., the vehicle had been moved and Los Alamos National Laboratory Emergency Management officials remained at the scene. The crash remains under investigation.
