GLENN COUNTY, Calif. - A CHP officer got quite a scare Monday morning in Glenn County after a 93-year-old man rear-ended one of their patrol cars.

This happened just before 7 a.m. on County Road 200 and County Road P south of Orland.

The CHP said officers were investigating a minor injury crash at that same spot when the driver of a Chevrolet equinox going north on County Road P rear-ended a patrol car.

That patrol car then hit another patrol car.

"There were minor injuries to the person that was driving the Chevrolet equinox. traffic was closed in the northbound lane that's why the vehicles were in the northbound lane," said Randy Forslund, a CHP officer.

No officers were injured and they do not believe drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.

The last two days saw quite a bit of rain in Northern California. Today we could see more but the showers look to be more isolated today than in previous days. Highs today are expected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
