A truck rear-ended a patrol car Sunday, and two Buena Park officers and a probation violator suffered minor injuries.The crash happened in the Santa Ana Canyon around 3 a.m. on the eastbound 91 Freeway near the Route 241 toll road interchange, said CHP officials.

The two officers were en route to Chino Prison with a parolee who had violated his probation.

According to Buena Park police, Caltrans had closed most of the lanes on the 91 for roadwork and traffic was at a crawl. That's when the truck rear-ended the patrol car.

The officers were treated and released at the scene for complaints of back and neck pain. The parolee was taken to an area hospital for complaints of back injuries.
