First of all, "Sheriff" Randy Fisher is a joke. Secondly, there is no reason to make more cause for emergency by driving over the speed limit under any circumstance. The officers of the law should be an example of the law, not creators of it. This is foolish and stupid.

25 years old...that in itself says a lot about the officer involved...80 mph that really says it all...absolutely no reason for anyone including police to be going this fast...speculation as to what really happened.....Age, Speed and Speculation taken together looks like an inside cover up...lets protect our own....

A Waynesboro police officer was briefly hospitalized Friday night after his patrol car collided with another vehicle at the intersection of Arch Avenue and West Main Street.

The accident happened about 7 p.m. Waynesboro police said the 27-year-old officer was responding to a domestic dispute call involving an armed assailant.


Police said the call was at the Mountain View Apartments. The officer's 2011 Crown Victoria patrol car was traveling north on Arch when it broadsided a 2003 Hyundai Accent driven by a 71-year-old Crozet resident.

The Hyundai was traveling west on Main. The impact of the accident sent the Hyundai into the Waynesboro Visitor's Center at 301 West Main.

Both drivers were taken to Augusta Health. The police officer was treated and released, and the driver of Hyundai's condition was not known. There were no other passengers in either vehicle.

OK, I will believe this story this time, and I hope the cop does get well soon and back to work, but why is it when you see any cop car out anywhere, when they take off at a light or stop sig they all gun it like they are going to the moon. They all do it and even when not going to a call they all speed way over the speed limit. Why? Because the don't pay for gas or maintain the cars or SUV's the get to drive. They don't car what is costs us, Augusta Co.tax payers. I wonder why the older County cop that drives an older Ford Explorer is sitting in the 7-11 parking lot everyday for over an hour or more while people are speeding and flying thru the school zone and Rt 340. Guess if you need a cop really bad, he is at the 7-11 everyday 2-4pm if you need one.

I am so tired of people always having some biting and hateful comment about our law enforcement officers. They can never win! If someone is injured before they can get to a call - they took too long to respond. If they wreck and nearly die trying to help someone who called 911 - they were too fast and reckless. This type of ignorance is infuriating for those praying their loved ones make it home every shift. I hope that when you need help in an emergency you figure out how to help yourself, because you surely wouldn't want an officer to help you. I wish you people would realize that these officers risk their lives every day to protect YOU! It would be nice for you to simply say THANK YOU! or even say something that indicates you wish the officer well and his family. If you care about response time so much - then hire more deputies. Having 4-6 deputies covering an area that is about 971 square miles in a county that has about 75,000 people is the real crime here!!!!!

Cops wife was right on and you sir or madam are clueless. Cops are in a Catch 22 nowadays. If they are not speeding to your call, they are lame and lazy. If they speed and try to get to your call as quick as possible, they are being reckless. Hopefully you will never need one at your house, but if it is getting broken into in the middle of the night or it is your car being stolen, or a member of your family being raped, robbed, or beat, which cop do you want on the way and by what means. Just say thank you and go on with your delusional life.

I always liked barricades car that said to punish n enslave, dirtbags need to be arrested but to help government make money off of people who will pay thier fines because they need a lisence im not down with. It used to be that if you got a ticket for say a light out n came to court showing it was fixed all charges would be dropped, now they will drop the fine and charge you the 61 court cost=the obama way

Cops wife is just that, a cops wife, living in a world where there are no bad cops, all cops are righteous and above board. Sadly thats not true, sure there are some good cops, most happen to be state troopers but the requirements to be a trooper are much higher than those of your average city or county cop we read so much about. Syay out the bushes.

Several officers in Albemarle County and Charlottesville have been charged and convicted in both minor and serious crashes over the years. You should check your facts before you speak!

Did you read the article, or just make a comment? He was responding to a fight with weapons. This is why the police have lights and sirens in their cars. Make sure you remember your position if you ever need the police for an emergency. When you call 911 tell them to take their time and be sure to drive the speed limit.

Hey im not a trooper and bottom line theres the law and the letter of the law, trooper requirements arent the best remember they had the myacc letter that said vets and returning vets were possible terrorist along with ron paul supporters which had alot of the young dumb troopers going against people that believe in nothing other than the constitution which I find is more important than the illegal wars n crap our government is trying to pull now
Thank you

Someone on here wanted to know if the deputy was the closest to the call. Umm yeah, probably. Since they only have 4 or 5 deputies working. Agreed, if they don't like it pay more taxes or donate money to the Sheriff to hire more manpower.
Thank you

Thank you, now I don't have to type all those words! VERY WELL SAID!!! I will only add that he should tell the 911 operator to please have the officer drive the speed limit when they respond to his emergency and take their time.
