LAFAYETTE, Calif. — An officer who crashed his patrol car late Sunday night was lucky to be able to walk away from the wreckage without serious injury to himself or his K-9 partner, Police Chief Mike Hubbard said today.

The officer involved in the accident was on his way to aid the pursuit of a suspected car thief just before midnight when he crashed his car on Pleasant Hill Road between Green Valley Drive and Reliez Valley Road.
