(BANT) – The CHP says a driver died Monday evening after crashing one of their officer’s patrol cars that was assisting a disabled vehicle on southbound Interstate 280 in Los Altos Hills.

The officer was called to the scene, on Highway 280 just north of El Monte Road, around 6:50 p.m. The driver of the vehicle that struck the patrol car was trapped inside and had to be extricated. That victim suffered major injuries, was eventually transported to Stanford Medical Center and pronounced dead.

The officer suffered only minor injuries and no other victims were taken to a hospital.
