HENAGAR, Ala. — According to Henagar Police Chief Randell Smith, a police officer was involved in a two-car accident last night, leaving Henagar out a police vehicle. The 2017 Ford Explorer was referred to as totaled today.

The collision happened at approximately 11:30 pm on Highway 75 (Broad Street), near Limon’s Restaurant in Henagar.

Another driver pulled out in front of Police Officer Clay Monroe while he was driving down Highway 75. Chief Smith transported Officer Monroe to DeKalb Regional Medical Center, where he was treated and released a couple of hours later.

The driver of the other vehicle refused treatment at the scene. While he reportedly did not have a driver license, he did have insurance.

“I’m just glad that no one got seriously hurt. Cars can be replaced, but people can’t,” said Chief Smith.

Chief Smith says they have put in a call to Montgomery today to inquire about getting a replacement vehicle.
