One of the officers was outside the vehicle when Iniguez struck the squad car and it sent the officer flying. The other officer was in the driver seat and received lacerations to his head requiring stitches.

The crash caused severe rear-end damage to the police vehicle and disabled Iniguez's car. Iniguez did try to start his vehicle after the crash but he was detained by the injured officers.
