A deputy was involved in a collision in Shingle Springs on Aug. 16 after another car failed to yield.
The deputy was traveling Code 3 — full lights and sirens — northbound on South Shingle Road, CHP Officer Quinn Cuthbertson said. As the deputy was crossing the intersection at about 20 mph on a red light on Mother Lode Drive, connecting to Highway 50, a car exiting the freeway failed to yield.
The white 1997 Toyota Corolla, exiting eastbound Highway 50, broadsided the patrol vehicle. Neither party reported an injury.
Cuthbertson wished to remind drivers that they are required to yield to emergency vehicles with active lights and sirens, as they have the right of way.
