An officer from the San Diego Police Department was rushed by helicopter to the hospital following a collision with a student driver Sunday evening in Alpine, California.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the collision took place shortly after 7 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of Alpine Boulevard just west of Victoria Drive, where a teenaged girl attempted a left hand turn in front of an off-duty police officer on a motorcycle, causing a head on collision that sent the officer into the windshield of the teen’s vehicle, resulting in a broken arm and a partially severed leg.

Paramedics were rushed to the scene to tend to the officer, who was knocked unconscious for several minutes. He was airlifted to Sharp Memorial Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition. Additional information about the officer has not yet been released. Neither the teenaged driver nor her mother in the front passenger seat was injured, aside from residual emotional trauma.

A preliminary investigation into the accident has revealed that the young driver had only a learner’s permit, and was being coached by her mother. No charges have yet been filed against the girl, though she is likely to face significant punishment and a potential postponement of her license.

As a student driver, it is essential to avoid situations beyond your comfort level behind the wheel. If you feel ill-prepared to tackle public roads, stick to private streets and neighborhoods until you can handle a vehicle with confidence, lest confusion and a lack of driving ability lead to a damaging accident.

If you or someone you know has been hurt in a crash involving a young driver such as this, you should seek help. Depending on the circumstances that led to your accident, you may be entitled to compensation to help pay for expenses like car repair payments and medical bills that may be outside your ability to afford on your own, and even replace wages from time spent away from work.
