OAKLAND (BCN) Oakland police today released the name of an officer who remains in critical condition after he crashed a police SUV into a car and big-rig while responding to a call early Monday morning. 

Officer Jordan Wingate, 22, responded at 2:49 a.m. to a suspicious persons report near Seventh Street and Middle Harbor Road near the Port of Oakland. 

As the SUV traveled east in the 1900 block of Middle Harbor Road, it collided with a car and a parked big-rig. 

The collision occurred outside the west gate of the port's Oakland International Container Terminal.

Police said Wingate had to be cut from the SUV by firefighters. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition and had surgery Monday. 

Police said no other drivers were injured in the collision, which is still under investigation.

Police said Wingate started with the Oakland Police Department in 2013 as a cadet. In 2016, he was hired as a police officer trainee and on May 5, 2017, he graduated from the Police Department's 176th Basic Academy.

Wingate is currently assigned to the patrol division. He is the son of a police lieutenant.

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf offered her support and prayers to the family.
