The LA Times reports that the LA police department has opened up an investigation into an incident where one of its young officers caused a crash in the carpool lane on highway 605. The officer, 26 years old, was driving a Chevy Camaro when he swerved into the lane next to him and crashed into the rear of a Nissan carrying a family of three.


The Nissan immediately burst into flames, trapping the family inside – CHP has declared the family dead at the scene.


After physically ramming the Nissan, the officer’s vehicle continued into another lane, where it struck A Toyota scion before coming to a stop, the driver of the scion suffered injuries.


The officer was arrested by CHP on suspicions of a felony DUI causing death and injury and is currently being held on $100,000 bail.


No open containers of alcoholic substance was found in the officer’s vehicle.
