Two Redwood City police motorcycle officers were injured Friday when a driver knocked them over as they set up a sobriety checkpoint, a police official said. The officers were traveling north on Arguello Street around 6:23 p.m. at Howland Street when they were struck by a southbound vehicle as it attempted to turn onto eastbound Howland Street, Sgt. Eric Stasiak said. The collision knocked over both officers, causing non-fatal injuries.
The driver stopped at the scene and was allowed to leave after speaking to investigators. The crash remains under investigation by the California Highway Patrol, Stasiak said. The officers were taken to a hospital for treatment and released. The sobriety checkpoint was cancelled as a result of the incident, Stasiak said.
