SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco Police have found the car that struck a South San Francisco police officer on Christmas Eve.
Police found the car, a white two-door Honda Accord with a broken passenger side mirror, on Friday. Investigators collected evidence and witness statements, police said.
The incident occurred around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 600 block of Spruce Avenue, when officers were investigating a different hit-and-run collision. The white Honda started speeding west toward them, according to police.
One officer was hit after the officers motioned for the driver to stop but the car continued at them. The officer was taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries not considered life threatening. He was released early Christmas morning and is back on duty, police said Saturday.
The investigation into the assault is ongoing. No arrests have been made.
