Occurred on 11/7 at 10:35 AM – Fisher Ave.
An officer on police detail on Fisher Ave. had his vehicle parked facing northbound when he observed another vehicle traveling on Fisher Ave from Clinton Rd towards Dean Rd in the wrong direction (posted temporary one way due to construction). There were barricades clearly positioned at the intersection of Clinton Rd and Fisher Ave preventing vehicles from accessing the road. The driver intentionally avoided the barricades and accessed Fisher Ave. She was instructed to turn her vehicle around and travel back towards Clinton Rd. With adequate room to turn the vehicle around, she instead put her vehicle in reverse and began to back up while still looking forward through her front windshield. She traveled approximately 75 feet in reverse, never looking back or using her mirrors, until she struck the officer’s parked truck in a rear-to-rear collision.
There were no injuries or charges at this time.
