Heard at work from a retired LEO that there was an accident at a major intersection involving a patro car and a Lincoln Navigator. This was in Sumter Sc.
I DO NOT know whether the LEO was on a call, if he had lights on etc. This was by word of mouth and just happened less than an hour and a half ago.
Supposedly what happened was the patrol car ran the red light and T-boned the Navigator killing the SUV driver. The LEO was airlifted in critical condition. The speed limit on the road the LEO was on was 60 reduced to 55 just before the light.
Please Keep your thoughts and prayers open for the officer involved and his family as well as the driver killed and his family.
