Violent rollover crash sends deputy’s car barreling through Santa Clarita intersection

Dashcam video captured the moment a violent crash sent a deputy’s vehicle barreling through a busy intersection in Santa Clarita on Wednesday.

The crash happened near Newhall Ranch Road and Bouquet Canyon Road at around 12:19 p.m., according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The deputy was heading northbound on Bouquet Canyon Road when a gold-colored Lexus heading westbound crashed into the passenger side of the patrol car.

The violent impact caused the deputy’s car to roll over several times through the busy intersection before colliding with an SUV that was stopped at a light in the opposite direction.

The crash also sent several large pieces of auto debris into the air, narrowly missing nearby vehicles.

Video shows several bystanders immediately exiting their cars and running over to check on the deputy after the crash.
