Earlier this month, a Lewisville police officer was involved in a car crash, but only suffered minor injuries. The officer in question was immediately brought to a hospital, where he was treated and released. The accident occurred early this month, around 3 p.m. in the afternoon. The patrol officer in question was on his way to a priority call traveling along Fox Avenue. Captain Casey Carter said the officer stopped at the intersection at Edmonds Lane.
“One car stopped for him, and the officer thought he was clear,” according to Carter. “When he preceded through the intersection, he collided with a blue Mitsubishi Lancer traveling on Edmonds Lane.”
The vehicle that yielded for the officer blocked the view of both the Lancer and patrol officer. The sole occupant complained about pain in his arm and was taken to the nearest hospital for treatment.
As per protocol, the injured officer was given a drug test. The patrols sergeant on duty responded to the accident and notified the Captain promptly. There is a clear video of the crash, which is under review by police department staff.
Personal Injury Claims
Vehicular accidents are all too common in cities. Busy metropolises are often bogged down with vehicles, like here in Lewisville. An accident is not the end of the world, though. You may have medical bills to pay, and property damage to account for. However, speaking with an attorney and filing an insurance claim can help. You may even recover full damages for the incident.
Navigating the world of insurance is often confusing, though. Leave this portion of the incident to an attorney with experience in car accidents.
