A Rocky Mount Police Officer that has been with the force for one year was seriously hurt in a car accident. The accident occured on Sunday morning as he was responding to a call for a robbery in progress. His police cruiser hit an SUV at Woodrull and Hunter Hill roads.
The Rocky Mount Fire Department and Nash County EMS also responded to the accident. Officials helped remove Silver – who was pinned – from his vehicle, said Rocky Mount District Fire Chief Larry Johnson.
The accident occurred near the Exxon gas station and the L&L Food Stores location at that intersection.
