ELK GROVE - Elk Grove police arrested a man involved in a three-vehicle crash that injured an Elk Grove police officer and another female driver.
John Minju, 40, was arrested hours later after fleeing the scene for felony hit and run and DUI with injury charges.
The crash was just after 11 p.m. Saturday at Elk Grove Florin and Sheldon roads in Elk Grove. It involved a marked police department cruiser and two other cars.
The police officer and a female driver were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police department spokesperson Officer Christopher Trim said Minju fled the scene and a search for him involving four different police agencies, K9 units and helicopters ensued.
He was eventually found on the 7900 block of Symington Way and determined to be under the influence of alcohol, according to Trim.
