, the California Highway Patrol says the incident is still “under investigation.”
CHP Officer Karina Nunoz told Patch that the officer was traveling eastbound on Washington Boulevard at Prospect Avenue on Feb. 14 at 3:16 p.m. when Roc was struck while crossing northbound on Washington Boulevard.
Roc was taken to UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center in Westwood where she underwent surgery for a broken pelvis.
CHP did confirm there is no marked crosswalk at Washington and Prospect and that his wife was on her way to pick up their daughter from school when she was struck.
Patch asked if CHP could confirm scanner reports that the Culver City Police officer was en route to a call involving a fight on a Culver City bus when he struck Roc. Officer Nunoz said she could only confirm that the officer was responding to a call at the time but had no specifics.
Nunoz also said CHP could not release any information regarding the speed the officer was traveling or the name of the officer involved while the incident is still under investigation.
There is still no timeline as to when the investigation will be complete.
Because the incident involved a Culver City Police officer, protocol dictates that CHP must investigate the incident and not Culver City Police.
Patch is in regular contact with Philippe Roc, who says his wife is still in hospital but is getting better.
Patch will bring you more details as they become available.
