ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Dougherty County Police Officer, banged up in a seven car pileup on the Liberty Bypass yesterday, is taking a couple of days off before returning to duty.
Officer Lynn Davis suffered minor injuries, mostly bruises, in that crash. Chief Don Cheek said Davis went home after the crash, and will have a couple of days off to recover.
Around 10:00AM Tuesday, Davis pulled his Patrol Car into the median. While cars immediately behind him slowed, an approaching SUV driven by 26-year-old Wendy Childs slammed into two other cars and the patrol car in the median.
As traffic slowed because of that crash, a dump truck hit two other vehicles.
Troopers have not issued any citations in the two crashes while they continue their investigation.
