Two Madison County Sheriff's Office vehicles collided on the way to a personal injury motor vehicle accident in Lebanon Monday night. Sheriff Ronald I. Cary said neither deputy driving was injured, nor was a passenger in the vehicle driven by Dep. Joshua Paul.
The other police vehicle was operated by Dep. Christopher Jones.
According to police reports, Sgt. Michael Hayes received a cell phone call from Paul just after 8 p.m. Aug. 25 that he and Jones had been involved in a collision. The officers were on Eaton Street in the town of Eaton when the lead vehicle slowed and the second vehicle crashed into it, Cary said.
According to county administrators, a liability waiver exists for the passenger in Paul's vehicle.
An estimate of damages was not available as of press time, but Cary said the vehicles are among the older cars in the sheriff's fleet.
The vehicles were towed to the police garage in Wampsville where they awaited appraisal.
