By From page A4 | July 06, 2014

A Woodland man suffered major injuries Thursday morning after pulling his car into the path of a California Highway Patrol vehicle northwest of Davis, authorities said.

Mark Pemberton, 45, was stopped on eastbound County Road 27 at about 7:45 a.m. when, for reasons that remain unclear, he pulled his Pontiac Trans Am in front of the patrol car, which was headed southbound on County Road 98 and not required to stop at the intersection, the CHP reported.

The officer, identified only by his last name of Tatum, applied his brakes and veered to the right but was unable to avoid colliding with the driver’s side door of the Pontiac, according to the CHP. Pemberton was transported to Kaiser Hospital in Vacaville, while Tatum was treated for minor injuries at Sutter Davis Hospital.
