DELHI, Calif. — A California Highway Patrol officer escaped injury Monday morning when a truck-trailer sideswiped his patrol car while he was writing a speeding ticket by the shoulder of the road.
Officer Jeremy Key, a 10-year veteran, said the 1992 Freightliner driven by Tracey Price, 41, of Fallon, Nev., "was really close" and barely missed hitting the car just in front of the patrol unit.
