The rescued officer and the tow truck driver were both critically injured and hospitalized. The second officer was hospitalized with serious injuries.
The Los Angeles police say that the four-vehicle crash happened at the intersection of Main Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard at around 10 p.m. on Wednesday.
The two police officers were responding to another call when the tow truck reportedly ran a red light and crashed into three cars, including the patrol car.
Five other people suffered minor injuries.
This crash remains under investigation and no exact cause has been determined yet.
