ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities say a deputy heading to an out-of-county hospital to investigate a dog attack has been in a crash after running a red light.
Asheville Police said the crashed happened Thursday night as a Transylvania County deputy headed to an Asheville hospital to take pictures of someone who was bitten by a dog.
A police search warrant says witnesses told investigators the deputy ran a red light. But they disagreed on whether his patrol car’s siren was on. The warrant says two witnesses said it was not on, one said it was and the fourth was unsure.
The warrant says the deputy had a concussion and bruised ribs and the driver of the 2000 BMW that was struck by the patrol car had a gash to her face.
