Paramount, CA (November 27, 2019) – Authorities in Paramount have updated information concerning a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy who was struck by a vehicle on Monday night, November 25th. Initially, the incident was reported at Indiana Avenue and Jackson Street around 9:30 p.m. but police have confirmed that it took place at the intersection of Alondra Boulevard and Downey Avenue at approximately 8:50 p.m.
The victim, now identified as a 25-year-old female officer, was pursuing a suspect on foot who had attacked her when she was struck by a Chevrolet Suburban. Emergency crews arrived at the scene where they immediately transported the seriously wounded officer to a local hospital.
Police stated that they located the driver of the Suburban who was then arrested for DUI. No further information has been reported.
Our thoughts are with the victim and her family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.

Furthermore, nationwide statistics show that a person is hit and killed by a motor vehicle almost every two hours in the U.S. These incidents are repeatedly caused by reckless or intoxicated drivers, and the complete defenselessness of the victim often results in a devastating outcome.
