A hit-and-run motorist heading eastbound on the 10 Freeway in South El Monte collided with another vehicle early Saturday, causing it to smash into a parked California Highway Patrol car, which erupted in flames, authorities said.
The incident occurred about 2 a.m. on the freeway just east of Peck Road, said CHP Officer Tony Polizzi.
Two CHP officers had stopped on the right shoulder of the freeway to talk to another driver in a separate matter, he said.
At some point, a minivan and a dark Mitsubishi Eclipse were involved in a collision, causing the minivan to hit the patrol car before it overturned, Polizzi said. Neither of the CHP officers were hurt.
