Nebraska Deputy Rearends Sports Car He Pulled Over

August 28, 2012

A Red Willow County Sheriff’s deputy who pulled over a Corvette for a traffic violation created a traffic breach of his own when he accidentally rear-ended the sports car.

The McCook Gazette reports that the Nebraska deputy was driving a marked, county-own sport utility vehicle when he stopped a 51-year-old from Phillipsburg, Kan., who was driving the Corvette.

Both vehicles pulled into a business parking lot. Davis says he thought he put his cruiser in park, but an item on the console apparently prevented the gear shift from fully engaging, and the cruiser rolled and rear-ended the Corvette.

The accident caused an estimated $1,200 in damage to the sports car.
