VIDEO: Tennessee Officer Rams Wrong-Way Vehicle to Protect Motorists

On March 26, Officer Cliff Thompson made a split-second decision to crash his patrol car into a vehicle driven by Sandra Sharpe, 59, of Nashville, who was traveling south in a northbound lane on I-65 near Moores Lane, according to a Brentwood Police Department news release.

Thompson and Sharpe were taken to Williamson Medical Center with minor injuries. Thompson was treated and released, police told the Tennessean.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol is investigating the crash and will make the decision on whether charges will be filed against the driver.

Good job Officer. Most of these kinds of problems result in death for unsuspecting drivers doing nothing wrong. In Ohio a very drunk woman traveled 17 miles the wrong way on Interstate RT 70 from Columbus to West Jefferson, Ohio until she hit a Mini Van head on killing one adult passenger and injuring the three children. The drunk driver was completely unhurt in the accident. This just happened last month and wrong way driving seems to be on the rise. The location she began her journey is very well marked and lighted but as drunk as she was neither the signs or the rumble strips detoured her from driving the wrong way.

This Officer did a very brave and noble thing using his cruiser yo stop this drunk driver from hurting or killing someone. Unfortunately there are those who will criticize him for crashing the patrol unit and costing the city or county money. Trouble with those folks is all they think about is money.
