California Highway Patrol officers suffered non-life threatening neck injuries today when a suspected California DUI - drunken driver rear-ended their patrol car on the right shoulder of the Golden State (5) Freeway in Glendale, California DUI attorneys said.

The CHP unit was sent to the scene of a two-vehicle crash on the northbound Golden State Freeway at Western Avenue around 12:15 a.m., California DUI lawyers say.

Roughly 15 minutes into the accident investigation, another vehicle - a blue Mustang convertible - slammed into the back of the patrol car while it was parked on the right shoulder, according to California DUI attorney sources.

The two officers who had been in the patrol car were taken to a hospital complaining of symptoms of whiplash, adding that their injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, California DUI lawyers report.

Following the second accident, the Mustang's driver was given a California DUI sobriety test and detained, according to California DUI lawyer sources.
