That officer was traveling South on Bemiss Road in Valdosta Friday night when the driver of a Mazda pick-up traveling North tried to make a left turn on to Skipper Bridge Road.

That driver failed to yield.

A 17-year-old passenger in the pick-up was taken to South Georgia Medical Center, but neither the driver or the police officer sustained serious injuries.
