Pasco sheriff's deputy in car crash on Little Road
HUDSON -- A Pasco deputy was involved in a traffic crash Thursday afternoon when her patrol car was struck by another vehicle that violated the right-of-way, according to a Sheriff's Office report.
Deputy Kim Norris was driving north on Little Road about 5 p.m. when a southbound 1986 Ford Tempo tried to turn east in front of her at the intersection of Hudson Avenue.
Norris told investigators that she had a green light and slammed on her brakes when she saw the Tempo start to turn across her path.
Norris' patrol car struck the Tempo. Witnesses corroborated the deputy's account.
The driver of the Tempo, 18-year-old Andrew Mitchell, said he didn't see Norris' patrol car until "it was right on top of me," according to reports.
There were no serious injuries in the crash.
The Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
