Description

ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - An Atkinson County Sheriff’s deputy was injured after being involved in a crash on Monday, April 1.

At around 5:07 p.m., Georgia State Patrol (GSP) troopers responded to the crash on Highway 520 and Kirkland Lane, according to GSP.

The deputy was stopped in the right eastbound lane of the highway with his blue lights on. He was blocking the lane due to a tractor-trailer being stuck on the shoulder. A wrecker was also attempting to pull the vehicle out of the roadway.

A Toyota Corolla, driven by John Marbary, 33, of Stone Mountain, Georgia, hit the back of the deputy’s vehicle. Atkinson County Sheriff David Moore told WALB that the wreck was caused by the driver not paying attention.

According to GSP, both the driver and the deputy suffered minor injuries and were taken to Coffee Regional Medical Center.

Marbury has been charged with violation of the Move Over Law, distracted driving, failure to yield to authorized emergency vehicles, and following too closely.
