A Brea Police cruiser was in need of a little body work last night after colliding with another car at the intersection of Lambert and the 57 freeway. The accident was the result of a pursuit which began in Corona around 6 p.m. Cops there were hot on the trail of a suspected motorcycle thief, 35-year-old Aaron Lindwedel, who was headed west on the 91 freeway.

"We got information from a Riverside PD helicopter saying they found a LoJack hit on a stolen vehicle," said Corona Police Lt. Shawn Dredla, adding that her officers pursued the cyclist as far as Weir Canyon Rd. The suspect then made his way north near the intersection of Bastanchury Rd. and Valley View Ave. where the Register reports Brea PD picked up the chase. The suspect was eventually apprehended, but not before a K-9 cruiser collided with another vehicle. 

According to the Register, the officer, and two occupants of the other vehicle were taken to the hospital but no serious injuries were reported. The officer's dog was taken to a veterinarian but has since been returned to its handler's home.

Good going to the Brea Police! Way to safely pursue on surface streets.

Good to see OCWeekly still doesn't give a rats-ass about minor things like facts and details.  Keep up the good work guys.

that's funny how the OC Weekly tries to cover up what happend by saying, "Oh no serious injuries"

and there are no pictures of the damaged car that was HIT not the one that HIT  the car.and then they go on to talk about the dog and how it went to the vet... 

The people in the car were actually seriously injured... Please get the facts straight.

Just because you're hot on someone's tail doesn't mean you run red lights at 40mph with perpendicular traffic WITHOUT your lights and sirens on. Congratulations Brea PD. Your officer in pursuit is an idiot, and very responsible. With great power comes great responsibility, and in this case, great lawsuits as well!!!!!!!

No serious injuries?! I heard that the passenger of the car that was hit had to go into surgery and still cannot walk. Look at the Police Car. That is all steel frame and reinforced front end for battering with. If the Police Car looks like that just think what the other car looked like.
