The deputies were responding to a call from Golden Valley High School, where a deputy was trying to remove combative students from campus, Harris said. Aresca was on his first ride-along when the collision occurred, said his father, John Aresca, who rushed to the hospital. “We saw him when they brought him in,” Aresca said of his son outside the hospital’s trauma room. “He’s OK, but we just wanted to make sure.” [email protected] CANYON COUNTRY – Two sheriff’s deputies and an Explorer en route to an emergency call were injured Friday afternoon when two squad cars collided in Canyon Country. Rescuers used the Jaws of Life device to free Deputy Michael Marion, 32, from his car, said sheriff’s Sgt. Darren Harris. Marion suffered bruises to his chest and possibly a fractured rib, but was in fair condition, Harris said. Deputy Laurie Baylis, 47, and Explorer David Aresca, 17, also suffered injuries, Harris said. Baylis might have broken her arm, Harris said. The trio, initially believed to be more seriously injured, was rushed to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital along intersections cleared of traffic by several deputies worried for their colleagues.
