HEMET, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say three people including a police officer were hurt in a three-vehicle crash in inland Southern California.

The California Highway Patrol is investigating whether the collision late Monday in Hemet was related to illegal street racing.

Television news footage shows three mangled vehicles, including one that's wrapped around a pole.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise newspaper says (http://bit.ly/2uuHGWf) the conditions of those hurt were not available early Tuesday.
