Santa Maria, CA – Officer Damon Badenell, who is in his early 30s, was responding as backup to the pursuit of a burglary suspect, Flores said.
The patrol car struck the center median and two trees, Flores said, adding that he had no information on how fast Badenell was traveling at the time of the single-vehicle crash.
Badenell, who suffered several broken bones and non-life-threatening injuries, was expected to remain in the hospital for about a week, Flores said.

Wow, I find it hard to believe he was able to walk away from that with some broken bones. I wonder how fast he was going?
