Officer hit from behind by car while attending road accident

An Atlanta Police Department officer was “seriously injured” after being struck from behind by an out of control vehicle while investigating a road accident.

The vehicles involved in the accident had been moved to the shoulder and Randerson had positioned his vehicle behind them to act as a warning to oncoming vehicles.

Bodycam footage captures the officer facing away from the scene before an approaching vehicle lost control and struck him.

Police said: “Randerson was seriously injured in the collision and remains off-duty during recovery.

“The driver who rammed into Randerson was cited for going too fast for conditions.”
