Report says police cruisers were involved in two separate crashes, and in one of those Jacksonville crashes someone was injured when an officer failed to stop at a stop sign.
According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, an officer was involved in a crash on Yacht Club Road. The officer, who was on routine patrol, failed to stop at the intersection of Yacht Club Road and Ortega Boulevard.
A witness, Asher Gavronsky, said two babies in the back seat were in car seats and seatbelts which really saved them, though they were terrified as expected.
It was reported by Sheriff’s Office that the officer struck a vehicle traveling north on Ortega Boulevard. The officer was not injured, however a passenger in the other car was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Report says the other crash happened on Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway at the intersection of Myrtle Avenue. The officer was responding to a call for assistance from another officer.
Sheriff’s Office said while going around the turn, the officer collided with another vehicle. The officer was not injured, and the driver of the other car was taken to a hospital as a precaution.
