DPD officer involved in car accident
A Demopolis police officer was injured in a car accident Thursday morning on Highway 80.
DPD Officer Dion Pritchett Jr., was injured when a vehicle ran into the back of his patrol car, according to DPD Chief Tommie Reese.
Reese said Pritchett complained of pain in his back and head, so he was transported by AmStar to Bryan W. Whitfield Memorial Hospital. The driver of the other vehicle was transported by a privately owned vehicle to Vaughan Regional Medical Center in Selma.
Both Pritchett and the driver of the other vehicle were treated and released Thursday, according to Reese.
