LASD patrol car goes airborne, flips after being hit by vehicle in Santa Clarita

Dashcam video shows the moment a vehicle slammed into an LA County Sheriff's deputy patrol car. And the deputy is expected to be okay.

The crash happened just after noon on Wednesday at the intersection of Newhall Ranch Rd. and Bouquet Canyon Rd. in Santa Clarita

The video shows the patrol car driving through the intersection along Bouquet Canyon, when it's T-boned by another car traveling along Newhall. The collision sends the cruiser airborne, spinning it around 180 degrees and sending it rolling at least twice. 

"[It] just happened so fast. It's like something you see in the movies," said Allen Rapisura, whose dashcam filmed the crash.

Sheriff's officials said an elderly driver in a gold Lexus accidentally crashed into the cruiser, which flipped several times before hitting a silver SUV.

The deputy's vehicle somehow managed to land upright. Multiple people who witnessed the crash jumped in to help the deputy and the other crash victims.

"I think it speaks volumes that Santa Clarita, the community loves the cops here," said LASD Sgt. Sherry Clark, who later added "It looked horrific and we're all just so surprised and very happy that [the deputy] walked away basically unscathed."

Neither the deputy nor the SUV's driver were seriously injured. They have both since been released from hospitals. Officials said the Lexus driver was not hurt.
