Saturday crash, police officer injured PDF Print
Sunday, 02 December 2007 18:00

A Granite Falls police officer was seriously injured while responding to a call on Dudley Avenue Saturday just after 8:30 p.m.

While police are still investigating the crash, early reports suggest there were two patrol cars responding to the call. The first patrol car hit a dog. The second car, driven by Patrolman R.D. Crosby, swerved to miss the dog and overcorrected, which caused his vehicle to roll twice and hit a power pole. Crosby was thrown approximately 30 feet from his patrol car and suffered broken bones and head trauma. The dog hit in the incident was killed instantly. The second officer involved was not injured.

Crosby was transported via helicopter to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.

The original call regarded an unconscious baby and a domestic situation.
