||Three officers injured when patrol cars collide
GRENADA, Miss. — Three Grenada police officers are expected to return to duty Friday after all suffered injuries when two patrol cars collided Wednesday afternoon.
Chief Ben Williams says the officers were responding to a report of an escape from the Grenada County jail around 5 p.m.
Williams says two officers at the police department got into a patrol car and left the parking bay to respond.
The officer driving could not see around a truck parked on Pearl Street and eased out into the roadway.
Another patrol car responding from Main Street hit the patrol car in the driver's side door.
The three officers suffered what Williams called minor injuries in the accident.
The patrol cars are totaled.
Williams says the escapee was recaptured a short time later and returned to the county jail.
