A Henderson County Sheriff’s patrol vehicle was destroyed in a crash Saturday morning. A deputy had made a traffic stop near Malakoff when a motorist struck his patrol unit from behind with enough force to cause it to flip, coming to rest on the roof with a crushed back section. There were no injuries.

When you see an emergency vehicle on the side of the road, please slow down and move over! It’s not only State law but also the right thing to do! We were extremely lucky this morning! A Deputy was on a traffic stop just outside Malakoff this morning when a vehicle struck the patrol unit from behind, causing the patrol unit to become airborne. All occupants of all vehicles walked away from this one, but all cars were damaged.
