Jacksonville, Florida – Police Officer Rear Ended While Responding To Accident

Jacksonville, Fla. — A police officer is recovering from injuries after being involved in a Florida car accident Tuesday night.

Officer John Williams was responding to an automobile accident on I-295 at Old St. Augustine Road, with his emergency lights on when his police car was rear-ended by another vehicle according to a Florida Highway Patrol spokesperson.

Williams, 43, was slowing down as he arrived at an accident scene just after 9 p.m. when the car behind him struck his police cruiser in the rear. The crash was so severe that it catapulted the police car into a third vehicle, which was then pushed into a fourth car.

The officer was the only person injured in the crash.

Coreyian Garvin, 20, was charged with causing the accident.
