Georgia troopers call for drivers to move over after cruiser was demolished by semi


The Georgia Department of Public Safety (DPS) is reminding drivers to move over for emergency vehicles after a State Police cruiser was badly damaged in a collision with a semi truck.

The crash occurred on Tuesday morning on I-75 in Tift County, Georgia.

Georgia DPS says that Trooper First Class (TFC) Wright was “working in an off-duty capacity” when the vehicle was struck from the rear by a tractor trailer that failed to move over.

The crash forced the police cruiser into the guardrail.

Wright suffered only minor injuries.

“Please Move Over for First Responders!” Georgia DPS said.
