Polk County Officer, Ginger Theroit called Polk County Emergency 911 this past Monday around five p.m. as she suffered injuries from a two vehicle accident she was involved in. The accident was on Prospect Road near Bellview Road, according to Examiner.com.
Apparently, Officer Theroit was on her way to respond to a call on Maple Street when this accident occurred. On the dispatch 911 call, Officer Theroit sounded upset and jolted, as expected when involved in an accident. However, she was able to relay the information to the Polk County 911 and told them to send EMS to her location.
The accident involved Officer Theroit’s police cruiser and a twenty thousand pound equipment work truck. Both vehicles collided head on. The name of the truck driver has not been released as of yet.
911 dispatch did ask Officer Theroit if she was code four and she responded, “I wouldn’t call it code four, but I’m still with you.” Georgia State Patrol and Rockmart Rescue & EMS Station Five were dispatched to this area.
The Officer’s patrol car suffered extensive damage. The driver of the truck had lacerations and neck and back pain. Officer Theroit sustained lacerations on her arm.
Right now, there is no information as to whether charges will be filed.
