THP investigating crash involving Johnson City Police Officer
A police officer was taken to the hospital following a two car crash last night in Johnson City.
A report from Tennessee Highway Patrol says a 17-year old juvenile was traveling north in a Jeep on N. Roan St. while Johnson City Police Officer Zachary Harris, 24, was traveling south.
The report said Harris was responding to a call and attempted to turn left onto Broyles Dr., when troopers say the jeep struck Harris’s patrol car in its right side. Harris received injuries from the accident while the juvenile was not injured. The officer’s condition was not listed in the report, however, we have reached out to Johnson City Police to check on Harris’s status.
The investigation is ongoing.
