Manhattan Beach Officer of the Year Tony Presgraves was released from the hospital Sunday, some four days after his patrol car and a Honda SUV collided on Sepulveda Boulevard at Ninth Street in MB, said MBPD Lt. Andy Harrod on Monday.
Harrod said the driver of the Honda was interviewed by investigators on Monday and that the investigation into the collision would take at least two months.
The investigation is being handled by the El Segundo Police Department.
"The cruiser was traveling northbound on Sepulveda Boulevard, heading to a priority one emergency when it sideswiped the SUV, according to authorities. They did not say what the emergency was.
"One witness at the scene said the cruiser was going so fast that it sounded like a pursuit.
"'We had a lot of fast vehicles going down and we heard a huge boom," he said."
