The trailer of the northbound truck hit the back of the stationary patrol vehicle just north of Bonita Road near Sweetwater County Park shortly before 4 a.m. as the officers were seated inside it on the right side of the rain-slicked freeway with their emergency lights flashing, said CHP spokesman Jake Sanchez.
Medics treated the officers at the scene, then took them to Scripps Mercy Hospital for precautionary evaluations.
No other injuries were reported.
