SHELTON - Washington State Patrol is investigating a crash involving a Shelton Police patrol vehicle.
Shelton Police Captain Mike Fiola says the crash happened on 1st Street and Grove Street on August 21. Fiola says the Officer Justine Fry was driving southbound on 1st Street while responding to a ‘shots fired’ call when his cruiser was t-boned by another vehicle. The vehicle that caused the crash was going east turning onto First street.
Fiola says no one was hurt, Officer Fry had slight whiplash. Fiola says driver who struck the police vehicle failed to yield at the stop sign which resulted in the crash. Fiola says the driver in the pedestrian vehicle reportedly thought they were being waived by a fellow motorist resulting in a failure to stop.
WSP is still investigating and will soon release the charges against the driver and reveal the exact cause of the crash.
