Deputy injured as his car is hit by allegedly unlicensed driver
Lt. Xavier Aguilar of the department's transit services bureau was responding to an emergency with his car’s red patrol lights flashing when he was broadsided at 6:08 p.m. Tuesday while making a right turn from eastbound Washington Boulevard onto Overland Avenue, officials said.
A 41-year-old suspect was arrested, given a citation and assigned a court date before being released by Culver City police.
Aguilar was treated at the scene, admitted to a hospital and released Wednesday morning, said a sheriff's spokesman.
