WARNER ROBINS -- A Houston County sheriff’s deputy was involved in a crash Thursday at Ga. 96 and Moody Road.

Deputy Justin Hall, who was on routine patrol in a sheriff’s patrol car, suffered minor cuts and was taken by another sheriff’s deputy to Houston Medical Center as a precaution, said Houston County sheriff’s 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 didn’t 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 sheriff’s vehicle is involved in an accident, Harlowe said. The sheriff’s office also is expected to do its own internal investigation, he said.

The 1:59 p.m. crash did not cause any road closures.
