Gainesville, GA – Two K9s Taken to Vet for Injuries after Wreck Involving a Tractor-Trailer

Gainesville, GA (November 12, 2022) – According to the Georgia State Patrol, two K9s belonging to the Hall County Sheriff’s Office were injured in a collision involving a tractor-trailer on Friday,  November 11, 2022 and were transported to a veterinary hospital for treatment of their injuries.

Troopers were called to Browns Bridge Road near Lamplighter Cove Road around 10:25 a.m. on Friday.

A deputy with the Hall County Sheriff’s Office was driving a 2018 Ford F-150 that was designated as a K9 vehicle westbound on Browns Bridge Road when they were forced to stop due to the volume of traffic. Timo and Bella, the two canine companions of the deputy, were housed in their respective kennels in the back of the truck.

According to the state patrol, the tractor-trailer driver, who was 60 years old and from Mt. Sterling, Kentucky, was following too closely when he collided with the back of the sheriff’s office truck.

The state patrol reported that both dogs were taken to a local veterinary hospital to be treated for their injuries, but they did not specify the severity of the dogs’ wounds.

The deputy only sustained minor injuries, and did not require transport to a hospital for treatment.

State patrol did not say whether the tractor-trailer driver was injured.

The Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team is investigating the accident prior to any charges being filed. 

I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.
