It was not clear what sent the patrol car through the market's wall but the officer was left with serious injuries to his leg.
Ponderosa Deli Market's owner, Wade Battikah, said he has own the store since 1984. When the patrol vehicle smashed through his building, he was in the back corner checking his phone.
"Thank God I was in that corner because everything came in."
Investigators lined police tape around a large chunk of National Avenue & Cesar E. Chavez Parkway to look into the crash.
The view from the outside shows several streets blocked off for a police investigation.
