Zone 2 APD officer involved in S. Buckhead accident; both drivers sent to hospital

A Zone 2 Atlanta Police officer and another driver were involved in a vehicle accident Saturday evening at Peachtree Road and Peachtree Battle Avenue that sent both drivers to the hospital with apparently non-life-threatening injuries.

The Atlanta Police Department reports that around 7:23 p.m. one of their officers was traveling south on Peachtree Road when the accident happened.

Officials said another driver heading the other way began to make a left turn just as the officer was about to enter the intersection at Peachtree Battle Avenue. The officer told investigators that she had no time to brake and hit the other vehicle on the passenger side.

Both drivers were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with what officials described as injuries that aren’t expected to be life-threatening.
