Riverside sheriff's deputy crashes into Grandpa and Granddaughter in Elsinore

These types of incidents seem to be piling up--cops are driving too fast or recklessly, and crash into civilians, often with tragic results. Fortunately, it seems like nobody was injured too bad in this case. Doesn't even look like it's being treated as an act of negligence. It's too bad--they should really usher the officer to a drug test immediately like they do to anybody driving a forklift who has a collision of any sort. It's too late for that, but that's the kind of response we would like to see when these incidents occur.

Here's some reporting from the Press-Enterprise:

This looks like a "routine traffic stop" (AKA predatory patrolling by armed agents of the police state) gone deadly. They are accusing the victim of having a weapon, but like always, we reserve judgment until more facts come out. Here's an article from TV station ABC:
