VIDEO: Georgia Investigator Killed in Collision During Pursuit

A Bibb County, GA, deputy died Thursday in a two-car accident in west Macon after pursuing a suspect, reports WMAZ.

Investigator Anthony "T.J." Freeman was coming to assist in the pursuit of a suspicious Toyota Camry when he collided with the Camry at the intersection of Columbus Road and Buena Vista Drive just after 3 a.m.

Freeman was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 3:36 a.m. He was 29.

Bibb County Sheriff's Lt. Randy Gonzalez said Freeman was a member of the K-9 unit and a part of the Special Investigations Unit. He said Freeman's K-9 Bojar was in the car at the time of the accident, but appeared to be OK.

Gonzalez said the man driving the Camry was 24-year-old Montavious Kinder. He was treated for minor injuries. Kinder has been charged with preexisting warrants and other charges are pending.

Sheriff David Davis said Freeman leaves behind a wife and two children.

What part of what vehicle struck what part of Kinder's vehicle? Was it a T-bone type collision? What part of Freeman's vehicle was struck? Were there any control signal lights? More information is needed.

Leonard, this was a press release and more information is usually held until the complete investigation is completed.
Another agency is going to investigate this matter.
I am surprised that a PIO (press information officer) was not available to give a statement.
However, I am from California and there may be a difference about the way this is handled.
