According to the preliminary crash report, a police officer with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office was hospitalized after a crash on Wilson Boulevard, just west of Blanding Boulevard.
According to Lt. D.E Pellot, it was reported that the driver of the cruiser was heading west on Wilson Boulevard when the driver of another vehicle, a Chevrolet HHR, turned into the path of the officer and caused the crash.
Pellot said, the officer was hospitalized for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The other driver was not hurt.
The identity of the police officer was not made public, likewise, the identity of the Chevrolet HHR driver. The reason the Chevrolet driver veered off his path has also not been determined nor made public.
Also at the moment, it’s unclear if the Chevrolet driver in the crash will receive a citation.
Glen Levine, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “This was a serious accident that left an officer seriously injured. Accidents like this are one of the most dangerous kinds of accidents. This type of accident usually happens because of driver error, meaning they are preventable. Sadly, the innocent victims of these crashes are rendered powerless: often, there’s nothing you can do when an oncoming vehicle is bearing down on you.. We wish that all involved have a speedy recovery from their injuries in this terrible accident.”
