WARNER ROBINS -- A Houston County sheriffs deputy was involved in a crash Thursday at Ga. 96 and Moody Road.
Deputy Justin Hall, who was on routine patrol in a sheriffs patrol car, suffered minor cuts and was taken by another sheriffs deputy to Houston Medical Center as a precaution, said Houston County sheriffs Lt. Ronnie Harlowe.
The driver of the pickup declined treatment on scene, Harlowe said.
Hall was traveling west on Ga. 96 and started turning south on Moody Road, Harlowe said. Hall didnt see the oncoming traffic and turned into the path of the pickup, Harlowe said
The Georgia State Patrol was asked to investigate the crash as routine protocol when a sheriffs vehicle is involved in an accident, Harlowe said. The sheriffs office also is expected to do its own internal investigation, he said.
The 1:59 p.m. crash did not cause any road closures.
