AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW)-A Richmond County Deputy was involved in a crash on Walton Way at Milledge Road around 9:53 p.m. Friday night, according to the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.
GSP says Tiffany Justice, 24, was responding to an assistance call when a car pulled out in front of the deputy's patrol car, causing Justice to lose control, the Sheriff's Office said.
The Sheriff's Office said she swerved, hit a tree and flipped. Justice was partially ejected from the patrol car through the driver's side door. The deputy was taken to GRU with non life-threatening injuries.
Georgia State Patrol will be handling the investigation as a single vehicle accident. GSP thinks Justice was not wearing a seatbelt.
