ATASCADERO An Atascadero Police officer was involved in a three-car accident on El Camino Real at Viejo Camino on Wednesday at about noon.

Atascadero Police and City Fire personnel responded to the wreck, which, according to a press release issued by the California Highway Patrol, involved a marked Atascadero Police cruiser driven by Officer Fred Pflum, a Chevrolet Suburban and a grey Chevrolet Equinox. Pflum reported the wreck from his vehicle.

The CHP press release said that both the driver of the Suburban and Pflum went to Twin Cities Community Hospital with minor injuries.

According to a woman involved with the accident, the Suburban was headed North on El Camino Real, the Equinox was preparing to turn right onto El Camino Real from Viejo Camino and the police cruiser was headed south on El Camino Real, turning left onto Viejo Camino.

Fault for the wreck could not be established as of press time, but Wilshusen said that because an APD officer was involved, the California Highway Patrol would investigate the incident.
