San Jose officers injured in carjacking chase

January 3, 2012 9:41:29 PM PST
Four San Jose police officers were injured, one seriously, late Tuesday morning when carjacking suspect Alejandro Gonzalez allegedly rammed their patrol cars while trying to evade capture.

The incident began when an officer saw a man being carjacked at at a gas station on King and McKee roads in East San Jose just before 11:30 a.m.

During the chase that followed, Gonzalez rear-ended one patrol car and then hit another when the officer put his car between the SUV and a mother and child crossing the street.

The chase finally ended at Alum Rock and McCreery avenues, where two officers blocked the SUV with their cars.

Gonzalez was subdued with a Taser and taken into custody.

Firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to rescue the most severely injured officer.
