MURFREESBORO, TN - A collision between a Murfreesboro Police Department (MPD) vehicle and a passenger car occurred around 2:00 PM last Friday at the intersection of NW Broad Street and South Church Street.

MORE - The two-vehicle crash that took place last Friday afternoon drew attention as it involved a Murfreesboro Police Department patrol unit. The MPD K9 unit was navigating the intersection of NW Broad Street and South Church Street when the collision occurred, impacting a passenger vehicle, identified as a black Mercedes Benz 2-door car.

Fortunately, the mishap resulted in minor injuries, with the officer sustaining a small cut to the nose. However, the K9 companion accompanying the officer emerged from the incident unscathed. The other driver involved in the crash escaped without injury, contributing to a fortunate outcome given the circumstances.

Despite the absence of serious injuries, standard protocol dictates a thorough investigation into the incident, particularly when it involves a law enforcement vehicle. As such, the Tennessee Highway Patrol has been tasked with determining the cause of the collision. Their inquiry aims to shed light on the sequence of events leading up to the crash and identify any contributing factors.

It is noteworthy that no arrests were made in connection with the accident, suggesting that the incident may have been a result of unforeseen circumstances rather than misconduct on anyone's behalf.

As with all incidents involving Murfreesboro Police Officers, transparency and accountability remain paramount. The involvement of an outside agency underscores the commitment to conducting a comprehensive and impartial investigation.
