South Fulton police cruiser hits vehicle, causes rollover wreck

The wreck happened at Camp Creek Parkway at North Commerce Drive.

SOUTH FULTON, Ga. — A South Fulton Police cruiser struck a second vehicle, causing it to flip in the middle of an intersection on Camp Creek Parkway Saturday morning, according to Police Chief Keith Meadows.

First responders were on the scene of the wreck, which occurred in the middle of the intersection of Camp Creek Parkway and North Commerce Drive at about 7:55 a.m. 

Traffic cameras showed that police were directing traffic around an overturned vehicle in the intersection and an ambulance was on the scene.

Meadows told 11Alive that an officer was entering the intersection when his foot slipped off of the brake of his cruiser and onto the accelerator, which sent his cruiser into the second vehicle. That second vehicle flipped onto its top. 

There were no serious injuries in the wreck, according to Meadows.

Meadows said that as a result of the incident, the officer was facing possible suspension and other possible administrative sanctions, including taking a defensive driving course.
